1lb loaf tin - dimensions?

accroul, Jan 10, 7:21am
I have a book (American) in my possesion that requires all it's recipes in a 1lb loaf pan.
I have a loaf pan, but how should I work out if it is the right size (or close)!

When I bake the bread in about 3 hours.

I used your dimensions to calculate a volume (figuring that 1lb tins would all have the same volume no matter what dimensions) then took that volume in water to fill the tin. Didn't work - My tin was 300ml shy of the 1.5L I calculated.The dough didn't rise like I expected it to either but that's neither here nor there, the family gutsaches still ate the resulting bread like a pack of seagulls!

Remember 1 500g pkt of butter is approximately a pound.
