Pullman Bread Tin

Well, Mr Postie bought me my Pullman Tin today. I have to say that so far I am impressed with the depth of it but the width of the slices is rather thin, bit like melba toast. Ho Hum - I will give it a go anyway. Others claim that a pullman tin gives a perfect square loaf.

I know breadmaking isn't really crafting (well to some maybe) but like lots of people I have a breadmaker and I have found that by using the dough programme and then letting the dough rise for a few hours, I can get wonderful bread that is light & fluffy. The problem I had was that no matter how much I tried to get it like a bloomer, it still resembled a cowpat and my littlelies are a bit funny with bread - it must be square.
Hence this tin. I have put the dough on and will bake later and give you another pic to see how it is.


  1. Just been reading through your blog, its so lovely honey, i have enjoyed reading all your posts. :-)

    Love and hugs Mwah X x X x X

  2. I would say bread making is deffinalty a craft or a art
    I had a bread machine and couldnt even manage a decent loaf with that..lol

  3. Forgive me for sounding ignorant but what exactly is different about a pullman tin?

  4. I haven't answered this yet as I am so deeply disappointed with it. The whole idea was to have a square soft loaf (re; the lid) which my kids would eat. I have made a couple of loaves in it and I would honestly say ; don't waste yer money.
