Hi Teena, if you're using a Pain de Mie Pan, we have some guidelines to offer you. A small, 9" Pain de Mie makes a 1 1/2-pound loaf, so use recipes that call for approximately 3 cups (360 grams) of flour. A typical, 13" Pain de Mie make a 2-pound loaf, which holds bread recipes calling for between 3 3/4 cups to 4 cups (450 to 480 grams) of flour. (You might be able to fit a 5 cup (600 grams) of flour recipe in here.) You can bake a whole host of different kinds of dough in this kind of pan, but enriched sandwich bread like this recipe for Honey-Oat Pain de Mie works especially well. Just be sure you follow the volume guidelines above when matching your pan and recipe, and extend the baking time by about 10-20% if you're baking with the lid on. (Check the internal temperature for doneness if possible. It should reach at least 190°F when it's done.) We hope this helps and happy baking! Kye@KAF
