I use 9x5 loaf pans and they turn out fine, they're just not as high as a regular loaf of bread. If you want large, square pieces of bread then you'd be better off making 2 loaves with the recipe and using a tester to determine doneness or using the smaller-sized loaf pan that the original recipe calls for. Greasing and flouring only the bottom of the loaf pan will allow the loaf to rise higher than a full grease and flour will.
