You can also edit the number of serving later, after fixing it, if it turns out that the actual number of servings is different from what you thought it would be.

It can be as many servings as you want it to be :) What I do for ones like that, is I start with a number and see how many calories it is. Like for a casserole in a large pan, I do 6 servings. If it's too much, I switch it to 8, or whatever the next number would be in the sequence. And, vice versa if it's smaller than I thought it would be. I do that until I get it to a calorie number I'm comfortable with.

For a bread loaf pan, assuming it's a 9x5x3 pan, 8 servings is usually a good number. If it's a smaller loaf pan, then maybe 6. But, like I said, it can be whatever you want it to be.

I am trying to add a recipe I have to the recipe calculator so I can track it. The problem is the recipe doesn't list # of servings.

*I haven't made it yet

It includes a standard cake mix but made in a bread loaf pan.

Any ideas?
