The lemon and poppyseed cake has a loaf pan size 19cm x 12cm x 9cm deep. I can't seem to find a pan of this size anywhere. Any suggestions on another sized pan please. Thank you.

Hi I copy and pasted to a word document. I used a two column table, oven and liquid in one column and dry weights in the other using tahoma font size 10. It fitted on one page then laminated for fridge door, handy as anything

Unfortunately, it's not possible to fit this article on to one sheet as there's too much information. You could try copying and pasting it into a word document then making the font size smaller. Regards, Debra, web editor.

What a shame these tables were not made more compact. All the info could have been put on one sheet and would have been handier in the kitchen just to slip into a plastic folder.
