**Some readers reported having trouble with the recipe spilling while baking. If you do not have a 9x9 pan with high sides, or you're concerned about this, please feel free to use a 9x13 pan. The baking time will vary a little, depending on the type of pan you use, so please check it to make sure it is cooked through in the middle.
