Hi, Elizabeth. Most quick breads that make 6 cups of batter are designed to fit in a 9" x 5" pan. For something like a zucchini bread, which is not a high riser, your 9" x 5" pan is probably the right size. 8 cups of batter would need a bigger loaf pan or a Bundt pan. IF the recipe is for something like a cake, which could double in height, your technique of using two smaller pans to be sure is a good one. In general, you don't want the batter to fill any pan more than 2/3 full. Susan
