Recipe Discrepancies

Recipe Discrepancies

Hi All,

I am sure this is something I am doing wrong, but I consistently notice that recipes don’t yield the amount specified.

For example, last night I made some homemade hoagie rolls. The recipe stated that it would yield eight rolls, but I was only able to get six decently sized rolls. I have noticed this with two sandwich bread recipes as well. For the longest time I just couldn’t get a whole wheat sandwich bread to turn out like I wanted. That recipe claimed to yield three loaves, but I only had success when I gave up on three and made two instead.

I weigh all ingredients and weigh the pieces when I divide and shape, so I just don’t understand. The breads usually turn out great (I’ve shared a picture of five of the rolls – had to eat one while it was still nice and warm), but I can’t help but feel like I must be doing something wrong…
