Bread baking tin sizes
I'm new to bread baking (UK based) and I'm just collecting some kit together. I'm proofing/baking in tins and want some guidance, please. I've found some small tins that I guess are around the one-pound mark but I want to make larger loaves.
Many recipes work around the 500g of flour amount or a multiple of it. After the shaping and proofing (sometimes using proofing baskets), they end up in tins. The local shops around here sell tins as one-pound or two-pound tins or have the tin dimensions in centimeters on the label.
Having had a look at the tins, the two-pound tin looks about right and the one-pound tins maybe a little too small. It is difficult to guess about the tins on sale marked in centimeters.
Using the 500g of flour type of recipe (or a multiple of this), what might be a good tin size to use for a final loaf that will be good for sandwiches etc? Does a dough made with 500g of flour nicely fill a two-pound tin?
Any thoughts, guidance or experience would be great.
