Converting recipe from 9"x13" pan to round pans?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello All,

 

I have a cake recipe I really like that serves 24 using a 9"x13" pan.

I need to make two 6" round cakes, two 9" round cakes, and two 12" round cakes. All 3" tall pans.

How do I calculate the ingredientsfrom the rectangle pan to the rounds?

 

Thanks for any help.

Estimate the volume of batter you usually get out of your recipe - try filling your 9x13 pan with water to the level you would normally fill the batter and measure the volume of water. Do the same for your new pans. A little division and you have the number of batches of your original recipe you need to make.

 

Here is a conversion chart that I have used with success.

Using 3" deep pans will change any chart you might be guided to unless, of course, it is designated for 3" deep pans :)    Also consider is the 9x13 that you use 3" deep? Most likely not so your best bet is to fill each pan w/water,  measuring that to see how much total batter you will need.  Do the same w/your 9x13 pan so you know how much batter that pan holds in order to compare.
