This is a good basic recipe for breads made with liquor. It can be varied with bourbon, Cognac or Sherry. Currants, glaceed fruits and a variety of nuts can be substituted.
Irish Whiskey Glaze
Yield: 3 mini-loaves
It says to use 3 greased mini-loaf foil pans 6 x 3 x 2 inches, (I used instead an 8-inch square pan and made 1 cake. Test to see if done).
Sometimes I put these cakes in different pans and usually it takes about the same time. Baking time will vary keep checking after 30 minutes with cake tester to see if the cakes are done and watch for color. Some of these cakes cook at a low temperature and take longer to bake, just keep checking. The St. Patrick's Day cake uses 3 (6 x 3 x 2-inch pans). I used one 8 x 8-inch pan and instead of 325 degrees F, I put it up to 350 degrees F and it took about 30 minutes. Make sure you don't overbake them though.
With all this in mind, a recipe calling for 2 to 2 1/2 cups of flour can be baked in the following pan sizes.
4 (6 x 3 x 2-inch)mini loaf pans
12 muffins (2 1/2 x 1 1/4-inch)
2 (8 x 4-inch) loaf pans
1 (9 x 5-inch loaf pan
1 (10-inch) springform pan
1 (10-inch) tube, kugelhopf, or decorative mold
2 (10-inch) deerback loaf pans
1 (9 x 13-inch) baking pan
2 (8 x 8-inch) baking pan
2 (10-inch) layer pans
1 (10-inch) fluted deep quiche pan
2 (1 1/2-quart) souffle dishes
1 (8 x 12-inch fluted baking pan
2 (3-cup) heart molds
