    THis sounds wonderful, but I am not sure as to what type pan you are referring. Do you mean to use a 9×5 loaf pan, such as for quick bread? Usually a posted recipe will give the pan size. THank you, and I am looking forward to trying this.

    Response to Reader Comment: Connie asked about the size of the baking pan. This is an excellent question. I looked up a chart of baking pan sizes and on Joy of Cooking at ( and it seems the best fit with this recipe as I make it is a 9×5 baking loaf pan. Thanks Connie!
