Whole Wheat Pullman/Pain de Mie

empecot | Aug 6, 2008 10:44 AM


I've become fed up with supermarket sandwich breads so I recently purchased a pullman pan to make my own.
I found this recipe on King Arthur's website for 100% Whole Wheat Pain de Mie

However, I have two issues with the recipe:
1. It calls for a 13" pullman pan, but I have a 15.75" pan and, being a bit of a novice when it comes to bread baking, I don't really know how to appropriately adjust the recipe for my longer pan.
2. It calls for 6 tablespoons of butter and 1 cup of milk, which seems like a lot to me. I'm wondering if there's anyway to sub in buttermilk for some or all of the fat/moisture in this recipe.

Do any of you bread experts out there have some suggestions for me?

Big thanks in advance!
