Hi!
I have a recipe for 8" round cake, but I need to make a 10" one.

How do I convert the recipe?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Xaleysan,

If you pan is 3" in height, you will need 5 cups of batter for 8" pan and 8 cups of batter for 10" pan.

Hope this helps.

Hi Xaleysan,

You said you have a recipe for 8" right? That should give you abt 5 cups of batter.

You can increase your recipe x2 - that should give you 10 cups of batter. Use 8 cups to bake in a 10" pan and use the rest of the batter to make cupcakes.

Let me know if you need further help.

Thanks
