Bake at 350 F for 25 to 26 minutes for cup cakes. For a bread in a 9 x 13 greased pan 50 minutes until knife comes out clean. I always do the quick finger test on the top. If it pops up it’s ready! If it stays down cook a little longer!
Let them cool on a wire rack. Enjoy them plain or make my Creamy Christmas Spice Icing!
