Step 2) Transfer batter to a greased bread pan (or use a 9″ square baking pan).

Step 3) Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Step 4) Allow bread to cool in pan. Then, run a butter knife along the edge before tipping upside down to gently remove bread. Enjoy!
