Changing baking tin size

I've got a glut of marrows and found a recipe on bbc good food for a marrow, pecan and maple cake.
I was thinking of adding raisins instead of pecans as I would do a carrot cake (then the kids will eat it!).
However I normally bake my carrot cake in a loaf tin and I don't have a deep round baking tin. The recipe suggests a 22cm round tin and cook for 1hr 20. Will it be a disaster if I use a 2lb loaf tin instead. Guessing it might need longer cooking time as deeper?

It'll be fine you are still cooking the same amount of food.

However, ditch the marrow and it'll be a lot nicer 😂😂

Ha yes! Bloody FiL keeps handing them in and I thought a cake might make them edible!

What are the measurements of your loaf tin? You need those to see how the change in tin will affect the depth of the cake.
