      Thanks for pointing that out Hazel. Sometimes when we transfer things they get mixed up so I when in and fixed it all. It should have been 2 Tbsp. of oil or melted margarine. Check it again and I think it will make much more sense. Thanks again.

    jill .. i have a ?? .. if u use a bread mix but u want it to be more like a cake instead of bread .. do you know what u need to add or change to make the mix more like cake than bread? (ex: banana bread changed to banana cake) .. i know u can make cookies out of the cake mixes (and now they sell those cookie mixes in the box in the stores) ..
    just curious .. thanks 😀

      I’m not sure Rose if I totally understand your question but like in your example of the banana bread into a cake well for something like that I don’t do anything different but change the pan I bake it in and maybe the time I bake it at. I have a banana bread recipe which I make into cupcakes and frost all the time and I have made it into a cake before doing nothing different.
      Most quick breads you can do the same thing. Now I wasn’t sure if you were meaning something else like a yeast bread mix or a quick bread mix. So let me know if I got it wrong.

    So the melted margarine goes into the mix, and then there is additional melted margarine for dipping before the topping? Or is the dipping margarine the 2T?
