MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2013

"I used those cute little ceramic bread dishes you see at the holidays. Even after measuring them, the amount of batter filled all four to the top. I should have known better, but proceeded anyway. Batter rose over the top, down the sides, and burned onto the bottom of the oven. The breads however, turned out great - not heavy or overly sweet. So caution to those of you out there who might also like to use decorative bake ware like me - you may need FIVE mini baking dishes (and Do NOT fill loaves to the top.)"
