Loaf tin sizes

Help-I have several loaf tins in various sizes and when a recipe dictates to use a 1lb or 2lb loaf tin how do I know what size to use. Any advice would be helpful

Loaf tin size

My 2 lb loaf tin takes 600 gms. Therefore, a 1 lb tin will take 300 gms. Don't know if that's a help.

grams of?

Is that grams of flour?

Loaf tin sizes

The other day I made meatloaf to be cooked in a 2 lb loaf tin. I would think that a large loaf (2 lb tin) would be fine using 600 gms flour.

measuring tins

You can fill your tins with water to find out their measurements as it will weigh the same as flour. Just put water in until filled and read off the weight in grams.

Loaf tins

Don't faff around measuring.

2 lb tin is large.

1 lb tin is small!

If the mixture looks too much you needed the large tin; if too little, you need the small tin.

I often get it wrong! Still tastes OK!

Tins

LOL Welsh Cookie. Of course you're right. I usually wait until the mixture is finished, look at what I have in my bowl and then quickly line the appropriate tin at the end.
