  5. Scoop the mixture (which will be quite stiff) into the loaf pan. Smooth the top so it is even. Bake for 50 minutes, then put a foil tent over the top and continue baking for about another 20 minutes. 

  6. Once a toothpick comes out clean, place the loaf in the pan on a wire rack and leave to cool in pan. The loaf pan should be quite cool to the touch before you turn it over and remove the loaf from the pan.  

  7. Slice with a serrated knife and store any uneaten part of the loaf in foil.
