This question keeps popping up. I suspect you have 1 lb pans vs the 9×5 1.25 lb pans. The formula fits well in the larger pans with good loft, especially the Modern and the Classic. You can use the smaller pan if you wish but I encourage to see if you can achieve the loft even with the larger pan. 🙂
We’re all volunteers here but the “business” of our non-profit is to provide a consistent, delicious, nutritious loaf. As much as possible I’d love for our loaves to look as uniform as possible. But we are not machines and there is a natural charm to our home-baked loaves.
Most important to me is that you enjoy the process and keep baking. We need so many more loaves! Thank you for the question.
