I did make this twice and each time I used a different size pan. I used a pan with four mini loaves in it the first day and today I used two 8 x 4 loaf pans. Just for convenience and clean up I think I prefer the 8 x 4, but they tasted the same and were wonderful either way.
If using four mini loaf pans, spray with cooking spray and fill each pan evenly; about 2/3 of the way full.
Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar topping and bake for 33-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
