    Size of loaf tin? 8th Jun 17 at 6:02 PM
    Sorry if this is a stupid question ...

    I'm planning to make a cake at the weekend (unusual for me!) and the recipe calls for a 1kg loaf tin. I've got a collection of tins (from when I used to bake a lot) but I can't work out which one is the 1kg loaf tin. Does anyone know the measurements of one so that I can check?

    Thanks.

    A 1kg loaf tin should hold a litre of water - won't be quite full

    I was going to say a 2lb tin too- so a large rather than small loaf tin
