Does a recipe change when you double the amount?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Basically, i'm looking for a short cut. I have found it easier to bake the layers of my cake seperately as opposed to making a cake and cutting the layers (this way overbakes and would come out dry). Now i'm looking for a way to make at least 2 batters at once and pouring into 2 pans. I made 2 - two tiered cakes in the last week. the first one i doubled the ingredients and split into 2 pans and the cakes came out darker. The single batter came out lighter and more moist. Not sure if it had anything to do with the doubleing of the batter. Does the recipe change when you double? Is there a proper way of doing this? or should i just stick to making 6 separate cakes for 2 tiered 3 layered cakes?

I always just double exactly, with no other changes to the recipie. I would try it again if I were you, might have just been a one-time fluke. I've it doesn't want to work right being doubled, then look for another mixing bowl for your mixer and and then you can prep two batters and mix one directly after the other to speed things up.

That's what i figured. I will try it again. however i just have to make sure i don't overbeat it. I'm wondering if that had anything to do with it. .
