Adjust Cooking Time/Temp???

I'd like to try using mini loaf pans to make individual-size meat loafs and quick breads. Do I need to make any adjustments???

You can use the same temps but you'll clearly have to cut the times. I have no experience with mini-loafs but would rely on a thermometer for the first go-aound with the meatloafs and then record the different time for future use. I'm sure someone will have more complete info.

We often make mini loaves. We cut back the time. But I could not tell you the time because we always sorta just cook stuff until it seems to be done.

Also have no idea how much our mini loaves weigh.

But small cooks in less time than large.

I use my banana bread recipe to make muffins (both regular and mini). I start checking them at about 12 minutes for the mini, and 15 for the regular.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

For breads and cakes, I stick a skewer in and see if it comes out cleanly or not. Too sticky and it needs longer.
