loaves of bread
It is not easy to have a bread loaf form in the true shape of a brick since the top is not naturally flat.
In your example, bread in that form are mini-loaves since they are cut from a bigger production loaf
which is easily done with German pumpernickel which is notoriously dense and heavy.
I would go with 'slab' as mentioned by @1006a
a thick plate or slice (as of stone, wood, or bread):
Examples of slab in a Sentence
a thick slab of homemade bread
This is not a loaf, because it is not the entire unit that was baked in one go.
Brick of bread is not an expression generally used in English, at least not in any dialect with which I am familiar.
This is a pack (or packet, preference may depend on dialect) of bread containing 7 slices cut from a larger loaf.
