    These are really yummy! I used coconut oil in place of the palm shortening. Then frosted with the cream cheese frosting on this site.

    how much coconut oil do I need to substitute that instead of palm shortening?

    Would this work if I baked it in a 9in round pan? I’d like to make a cake for my moms birthday.

      Yes it will work, but will probably take less time to bake. You will have to closely monitor it as a shorter pan will cook faster than a taller, bread pan. -Kara
