I have it in the oven now, but did not read the reviews until now. I also thought it was too much batter for one loaf pan so I put some of it in a small loaf pan.

The baking dish size is too small. It is running over as we speak, and I used the size named.

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
Used a no sugar apple butter. Toasted the nuts before adding to the recipe using pecans on one batch and walnuts on another. Also sprinkled Demerara Cane Sugar to the top of the loaf before baking. Had great success doubleing this recipe too. Texture and looks were appealing and the taste delightful. If you have a sweeeet tooth this may not be for you.
