      just curious – is that an actual picture? the recipe instructions call for a 10 x 15 pan, not a loaf pan. I couldn’t picture that loaf coming from a sheet pan.

        Hi Joe, thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, our original image got lost so we added one that was not the exact one but similar. I hope you don’t mind. We wanted to publish the recipe as we thought it is a good one. Thanks, Susanne

      So quick and easy. I made it in a loaf pan and it worked perfectly using xylitol for the sweet part. Added cinnamon and walnuts for addedd yummyness!

      Hi how thick should the slices be cut? And could you please post an actual image?

      • Samantha Jones  says:

        Hi Fernanda! The thickness of the cuts depends on your personal preference, but as a general rule, around 2cm thick is a good start. :)
