  1. well it was too late added baking soda then noticed the baking powder but this wa on another site so I researched and found urs with correction. all good

  2. I’m confused by when you add the glaze. Per the directions the glaze will be on the bottom of the cake versus the top. I think I will take the cake out of the mold once it’s semi-cooled and then pour the glaze over?!

    1. Hi Lorraine,

      Yes, you can bake in a regular loaf pan but be sure to use a knife, inserted in the middle of the cake, to figure out when it is done. The knife should come out clean. A loaf pan may take a little longer to bake than a bundt pan.
