Calphalon 8qt Enamel Cast Iron DO Oblong Shape
I have a 8qt dutch oven by calphalon which is oblong shaped, and is enamel cast iron. My question is since it is a large dutch oven, how much dough can be used in it? I basically use 32 oz of flour, 24 oz of water, salt & yeast. I usually divide the dough in half and make two loaves, baked on my stone. If I want to use the dutch oven instead. could I bake one loaf and then the other loaf or would the loaf be too small and spread too much. Hope someone can give me advice on this. My hubby prefers long loaves to round loaves. Don't know why, since it makes no difference to me. Thanks!
