BAKING PAN IS OBVIOUSLY INCORRECT. NOT A LOAF PAN PROBABLY AN 8X8

these are so good. I love them. they are quick and easy. I accidentally burned them once and my family thought they tasted even better that way. they are perfect for family get togethers. just don't inhale when you go to take a bite. =)
