One Recipe - different size cake tinsWe've all been there, we have a tried and tested recipe, but need to make a bigger cake with it.
If you have a Madeira Cake Recipe than you can start from an 8" recipe, and the following should help. Remember although the quanity increases sounds a lot - you are measuring in volume, not just the width of the tin!
So for a
6" cake tin, half the recipe
7" cake tin, 3/4 of the recipe
8" cake tin, is the complete recipe
9" cake tin, is the whole recipe plus a third
10" cake tin, is double the recipe
11" cake tin, is two and a half times the recipe
12" cake tin, is three and a quarter time the recipe
Remember that you baking times may vary slightly, a madeira cake usually takes one to one and a half hours to bake (at around 175 degrees C). Just skewer the cake to ensure the cake is baked completely.
