The pans are slightly smaller so the recipe is not double the amounts of the recipe for one loaf. This recipe has been adjusted to be in proportion to the smaller pans.

I was able to buy a 2 lb bag of Red Star Active Dry Yeast for $3.89 from our local Costco store. Each packet is about 2 tsp of yeast so when you buy yeast in bulk you use 2 tsp when the recipe calls for 1 packet. ... Read More
