I made this in a 9 inch cake pan. It overflowed the pan. Delicious, but glad I had a cookie sheet on the lower rack. Now I make it in a bundt pan. Love it! It would be helpful to say how long the recommended time is to let sit covered before adding creamed butter and sugar to the sourdough and flour mixture. And, it's nice with craisins.
