Bread Pan Size
Hi all. This is my first post here. I'm a newbie bread baker. I've only ever used a bread machine, but want to start making real white bread loaves in loaf pans. Figuring I'd like to get the biggest, yet somewhat standard sized loaves per baking session, I asked my wife for 9 X 5 loaf pans for Christmas. She got me two of these:
When I got them I noticed that they were 9.25 X 5.25. I looked up whether that was OK on various websites, and gathered that even a slight difference in pans can make bread not rise correctly or be shaped incorrectly. So, my first question is, is this a good sized loaf pane to make plain white bread?
Second question is, do any of you know some tasty white bread recipes that specify ingredients in quantities that will work well in these loaf pans?
