Need help in a recipe for this loaf pan, 16 x 4 x 4 . Looking to make a Honey Wheat Bread good for sanwiches. Please help (
I use them for pound cakes. I tried one time making bread in mine and it may have been just me but it was a nightmare! The bread was horrible. I don't know if it was operator error or the pan. Probably some of both. Good luck and let me know how it works. I am very interested in how you do.
8x4x4 is pretty a common size, and I think a 1 lb loaf fits well in them. Try a 2lbs loaf of any recipe.
I tried the 2lbs as suggested and it worked well. I tried whole wheat and it was a disaster. It was flat, hard and awful tasting. I still need a good recipe for a fluffier and light whole wheat bread. All whole wheat recipes I have tried in bread maker come out very dense, good taste but very dense. I get full with one slice. HELP.
2 lbs 4 oz to account for the water evaporation during baking and you will get a 2 pound loaf
that looks like a pullman with out the cover
I will give it test run. The reason I bought such a big pan is because since I've been baking bread on a bread maker, it seems to go fast. bread comes out very tasty. I need a larger yield. Honey Wheat and Cinnamon Sunrise breads are our favorites aside of cinnamon rolls. Also looking to make a large banana nut bread in this.
If that pan were a little larger you could bury bodies in it! Just saying.
My loaves did the same thing. Horrible hard crust, like a thick pie crust and the middle never did get done. After two of those I resigned those pans to cakes.
When using "coarse" flours like whole wheat, light & dark rye, etc., I have started using 1T of vital wheat gluten per cup of coarse flour to assist in development of gluten and get a nice rise from your dough.
