The loaf pan is a regular loaf pan. When I saw the designation ‘small’ it threw me but now that I’ve made this, forget ‘small’. Just use a loaf pan. Easy to prepare, a little sweet for my taste but a big hit with the grandkids

I love your recipes, made several and they never disappoint!! In this one the hemp/flax seeds are listed but not included in the instructions. Safe to assume they’re mixed into the delicious concoction in Step 1?
