I wanted to bake some different shaped goodies for this holiday. I gave this a try cutting the rec in half, used 2 1-lb coffee cans. This filled the coffee cans to within 1" from top, did I make the sleeve, of course not!!! Chunks of apple, nuts, etc bubbled over the side of the cans. Next time I will fill 3 coffee cans 1/2 full and see what happens. I also added some raisins. The bread was excellent, my family loves Merryfield applecake and for ease of making, and the great taste, I will be making this bread from now on.
