how to prevent large deep cake from burning at side?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.
i fairly new to baking larger cakes.
i love my dense vanilla cake recipe, it bakes perfectly in my normal 19cm baking pan but once i double the mixture and place it in a deeper pan it takes longer and the sides gets burnt and dry while the rest of the cake is still getting cooked how do i prevent his from happening?
someone mentioned baking my cake half and half. meaning divide my mixture in 2 pans and then sandwhich them...
is it possible to bake a perfect cake in 1 go...? as opposed to baking 2?

thanks!!!

Do you use baking strips? If not, that's the first thing I would try. I always use them. Also, on any cakes larger than 6", I use a flower nail in the center to help conduct the heat. I've been known to use four of them on a sheet cake. I have a heat core, but the nails work for me so I haven't even tried it yet.

Hello Sarah,
Can be done with difficulty and careful planning. I will advice you to bake in 2 batches as it takes less time and less preparation but can be done in one go if you double line your cake pan and bake at reduced temperature and watch with an eagles eye so that you dont overbake. Also, use a heating core or flower nail in the centre of the pan/batter. HTH
