Dough quantity for a specific baked bread weight

Because there is less water loss while baking a large bread it is important to have an idea of the amount of dough required for a specific cooked bread weight.
This is not an exact science because the more water in your dough (hydration level) the more water you loose while baking.


Cooked bread weight       Extra dough required
0 to 50gr add 50%
50 to 200gr add 45%
200 to 250gr add 40%
250 to 500gr add 37%
500 to 650gr add 30%
650 to 900gr add 28%
900 to 1100gr add 27%

For example to produce a 350gr bread 480gr of dough is required.
