Baby woke at silly-o-clock this morning and it's taken so long to get her back to sleep that I'm wide awake
I decided to make a tea loaf, which I haven't made for years BTW, and began soaking the fruit etc and I'm now ready to put the mixture into what the recipe calls for, a 1lb loaf tin.
I have two rectangular tins, both the same size, but I can't tell if their 1lb ones or not. They aren't marked in any way as far as I can see, is there a clever way to tell what weight they'll hold or do I just guess?
Oh why did I ever start baking at this ungodly hour peoples brains don't work properly this early do they?
8" x 3" would be a 1lb Loaf Pan. It should also be possible to obtain a 1/2 lb one (we make them) or even 2 x 1/2 lb ones so you can split your recipe, eat one and freeze one as you may not have to bake at such a time in the morning again, and it is always useful to have something on hand in the freezer. That said,ir must be nice for everyone else in the house to wake up to the small of baking!
