The Cake and Bake Pan has turned out perfect whole wheat bread for me. I used a bread mix prepared for a bread maker. I could not ask for better texture. I also made a chocolate cake, and when I turned it out I had what looked like a perfect two-layer cake -- only it was only ONE layer. I have a 1975 recipe book that I use as a guide, but there are recipes to be found on-line. Be sure to prepare the pan.
