  • Bake the cake in a 325 degree F oven for 55 to 60 minutes for the 9x5x3-inch loaf or 65 to 75 minutes for the 8x4x2-inch loaf or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Loosen the edges of the cake. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
