This turned out great! I used regular orange cake mix instead of white mixed with gelatin. I had absolutely NO problem with it staying in the pan - and my pan was a 9x5(I even measured). Just in case, I placed a cookie sheet on the rack underneath. By the way...that's a good thing to do when trying a new recipe. That way if it does spill over, you just have the cookie sheet to clean. I ended up letting it bake for a few extra minutes(I was feeding a baby), but it still was fine. I didn't quite use a whole 1/4th cup poppy seeds, but I used an entire 0.8oz container - almost 1/4th cup. As for the coconut cream pudding mix, I don't think you HAVE to use it(as another reveiwer put it..). Maybe it adds a bit of a different flavor...or compliments the any rate, of you don't want to use coconut, use vanilla! Not that big of a deal! I said, this bread is wonderful! All it needs is a powdered sugar icing drizzle and yuuuuuuuuuuummm!!!

This bread was ok. The recipe calls for a 9 by 5 inch pan. I used that pan and in the oven the bread started overflowing ou tof the pan. It was a big mess to clean up and the cake is not very put together. I don't understand why you had to use coconut pudding. I will not try this again.

The taste was just what I expected which was not good.

This recipe should be made in two pans. I used one as directed and it overflowed badly.

This overflowed all over the oven and pan and then hardened and was a mess. I will never make again.
