Cake makers: if I use a round instead of loaf tin, do I need to adjust cooking time?

I need to use up 872 ripe bananas, so have decided to make banana cake. Trouble is I only have a small loaf tin (recipe calls for a 2lb tin). If I use a round cake tin, will I need to adjust cooking time or will it work just as well either way?

IIWY I would just keep testing it - if anything I would expect the cooking time to be a bit less with a round tin.

You can freeze ripe bananas and make banana cake with them at some point in the future, BTW.

Thanks stealthsquiggle - good tip about freezing the bananas too

OK, I was exaggerating a tiny bit there. I have six grin

am strangely disappointed by lack of personal banana mountain and resulting gigantic banana loaf.
