Can I make this in a loaf pan? If so, for how long do I bake it and will any modifications to the recipe be needed? Thanks!

Hi Robin, thanks for your question! We would suggest dividing the batter between two greased 8x-4-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350F for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. We have not tested this recipe in loaf pans, so keep a close eye on timing. Happy baking!

Absolutely perfect! When I tried other recipes for Gluten Free pound cake in the past the flavor was always there but the texture was not. This pound cake, however, was not only tasty but the texture was spot on. I'm not a master baker by any means and I found this recipe easy to follow with great results. I used almond milk instead of cow's milk and added the zest of one lemon. I will definitely be adding this to my favorites!
