Batter is enough to fill the 8 inch square pan that the recipe calls for. Also fills two 9 inch loaf pans nicely. Turned out dry because the pan Beth used was too large.

It was not quite enough batter to fill a 9X13 pan. It did not as long to bake as listed. It turned out somewhat dry. Overall it has a good taste, but I think I will keep searching.
