Why do I need a 2-lb loaf?
Here’s a picture of a 2-lb loaf of bread from a bread machine:
When I make a 2-lb loaf in my machine, it’s always twice as tall as a reasonable loaf of bread, and of course it’s just as long as a 1-lb loaf (which I make more often).
I was wondering if anyone actually makes 2-lb loaves in their bread machine, if so, why, and has anyone tried cutting a loaf in half to make 2 reasonably-sized loaves in one batch? Does that only end in tears?
