Thank you for this. I do not have the proper sized cans to make this like I used to and never thought of steaming it in a loaf pan. I love this with some authentic baked beans.

MY REVIEW

I love this bread for breakfast, and it's so healthy too. I'm happy when a recipie gets me to try something new and I end up liking it. But . . . my hubby and kids won't touch the stuff. All the more for me! Ha-ha!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 13, 2011

i didn't have a rack so I laid some forks in the bottom of the pot and sat my cans on them, worked great.
