First time baker and quick question!
And hello, by the way.
I decided that I don't want HFCS in my bread anymore, and I like cooking so I figured I'd give bread making a shot.
I'm just going to start with loaves because my wife and I like to eat sandwiches. Simple question: about how much dough by weight goes into a standard 8.5" loaf pan? I've read a bit on this site so far and I don't know if I haven't seen it or if that piece of knowledge is SO common that people don't bother to mention it. Is there a general rule of thumb like ~1lb=1 loaf pan? Thanks in advance for your input and advice. I'm happy to have found you.
Side notes: I do know how to spell. Tolstoy is one of my favorite authors and a literary inspiration, and I recently read Anna Karenina, so I figured "Levin bred" would be a good name.
I also used to make fresh pizza dough for a local pizza joint, so I hope to get the hang of this artisan stuff in short order!
