We pour into individual loaf pans, but the recipe calls for 2 greased 9x5x3. Bake at 350 deg. 60 to 70 min. for big loaf pans….a little less for individual pans depending on your oven.
Cool for ten minutes then loosen sides and place on cooling rack. Try to keep your hands off for however many cooling minutes it takes for a clean slice….Toppings: Ice Cream, whipped cream, your pleasure
Bake the individual pans and give one to each of your friends, then be prepared to bake them the rest of your life.
