Hi Carol- I can't find my bundt pan and can't remember when I last used it. Do you think I could make this cake in 2 medium loaf pans? If so, do you think baking for 55-60 minutes would be the right amount of cook time? No hurry on the answer, don't have carrots in the house. Thanks and hope you're staying warm, brrrrrr:)
