Cooking time will depend on the size ofyour forms. I held the grain shape in the oven 50 minutes and circular - about an hour. The dough turns brown pretty quickly (due to honey), so check it on the readiness of a match or a wooden toothpick (pierce the cake in the center, toothpick should come out dry).
