Dear Friends
I want to try a recipe from Shirley Corriher’s Cookwise. It is for oat bran muffins. She says it will bake 14 muffins (the batter is 1/3 cup per muffin). I don’t have a muffin tin but an 8 inch cake pan, a 9 inch cake pan, and a loaf pan.

Which one should I use? And how long should it take to bake. For muffins it is 20-25 minutes. What are your thoughts?

Thank you

I have muffin recipes which state I can use a loaf pan in it’s place. I believe muffin recipes are comparable to quick breads.

I use a 9 x 5 loaf pan and start checking my quick breads for doneness at 50 minutes.

At the most, I usually add 5 minutes. My quick breads are usually perfect at 55 minutes. I have never baked one longer despite the time suggested by the recipe (unless it is Rose’s recipes which are always accurate).

As for the 14 muffins, I would suggest to fill the pan no more than 2/3 full.

I hope this helps you.

Please let me know how your recipe comes out. I have never tried a Corrither’s recipe.
