World's Largest Pan Loaf of Bread

World's Largest Pan Loaf of Bread

     On November 13, 1987, 200 students of Eisenhower Junior High School made the World's Largest Pan Loaf of Bread. It weighed 307 pounds and measured 7-feet long, 2-feet 5-inches wide and 1-foot 8-inches high. The "Mega Loaf" was baked at Bacchus, Utah, in a huge autoclave oven used to bake casings for solid-fuel rocket booster motors. (The previous world record for the Largest Pan Loaf of Bread was set in 1912, when Austinite Newburg reportedly baked a loaf of bread that weighed 162 pounds and was 10 feet long, 18 inches wide and 18 inches high.) This world record has been accepted by Mormon World Records.

The above "1987 Largest Pan Loaf of Bread" was mentioned in LDS Living magazine, October 2014, and can be viewed online at: http://ldsliving.com/story/77160-15-impressive-world-records-set-by-mormons
