Can a muffin recipe be baked in a loaf pan?

lexuschef | Jan 26, 201103:41 PM     3

I am wondering if I can use a muffin recipe to bake in a loaf pan. If so, what considerations do I need to make regarding cooking temperature and time? Also, how can I determine how many loaf pans I would need for a recipe?

I am going to have a "Chopped" style baking contest with a friend and think I might find better or additional source material from muffin recipes in addition to quick breads. The end product must have been baked in a loaf pan (a gift from the other contestant), and must include peaches, sunflower seeds and cinnamon (chosen randomly by our co-workers) hence my thoughts of muffin recipes.

Although I love to cook and feel very comfortable deviating from recipes, I am not secure in my baking skills so any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Teresa
