Cake Pan Size Conversions

Trying to fit a square cake into a round pan? Find out how much batter you'll need.

If you have an unusual pan size and would like to figure out its capacity, measure the amount of water it takes to fill the pan.

  • Compare that measurement to the volumes in our chart (or the cake pan size listed in your recipe) to determine how much batter you'll need.
  • To ensure a cake rises evenly, you should only fill your pans to the half-way mark.
  • The baking time may change as well, so it is imperative that you keep a watchful eye on your cake, and check for doneness using your preferred method.
  • It's always better to have a little extra batter, rather than not enough. Once you've filled the pans half-full, use any remaining batter to bake a few cupcakes.

You have the cake pan conversions, which I find very helpful. Now how about the adjustments of cooking time and temperature?
 
Jun. 30, 2009 1:11 pm
so if the recipes calls to bake a cake for 29-34 minutes in a 13"x9" but instead I use an 11"x8" - how do I adjust the time and temperature?
 
Jul. 7, 2009 12:12 pm
Hi lexi922 and pao2310. You never need to adjust the oven temperature: cakes need to bake quickly in a relatively hot oven to set their structure and to make sure they don't dry out. You only need to adjust the baking time. For example, the same cake batter baked in a Bundt cake pan might take a full hour to bake, whereas cupcakes might be done after only 20 minutes. If you’re using a smaller pan with the same volume of batter (using an 11"x8" pan instead of 13"x9"), you're actually making a deeper cake, so it might take a little longer to bake. I'd still start checking it after 30 minutes: the cake should spring back when you touch the surface lightly with your finger. If it springs back, use a toothpick to be sure it's done. Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake and hold it there for a second before pulling it out. If a couple of crumbs stick to the toothpick, the cake is done; if you see a wet batter, add about five more minutes to your timer before checking your cake again.

FrancesC - thanks so much for the tips on conversion. I'm in the middle of baking zuchini bread in a bundt pan because I don't have two loaf pans (like the recipe called for), so this helps me adjust my time and not be panicked during the whole baking that the temp is wrong. THANKS!

I just printed the chart w/o ads. Highlight what you want to print. When you are highlighting around the area where the ads are, you may have to move your mouse over some so that the ads won't be highlighted. Click on "File", then on "Print" & next on "Selection" & finally on "OK". Hope this helps.

I love to bake! However, there are only two people in my household and a whole cake is a LOT for us, especially since we are both trying to lose weight. I know that there are healthier recipes for baking, but I would really like to try some recipes so thought I might invest in some smaller pans, like 6x2 or 4x2 inch rounds. Does anyone have a conversion for basic bake times for cakes of those sizes? I know my recipes usually call for 30-35 minutes at 350.

i don't understand the conversions. 1 inch between an 8 and 9" cake is 2 cups of batter but 1 inch between a 9 and 10" cake is 5 cups of batter. how is that possible? are these measurements even accurate>

Aug. 2, 2010. No matter HOW well I grease & flour my tube cake pan, my cake ALWAYS sticks and comes apart in areas. I let it cool out first on a rack, prob. for 30" or so, then upend it onto the legs that are afixed to the tube pan. If it has not dropped down yet, I run a knife around the edges & around the middle tube, then turn it up again, and when it finally does fall, part of the cake remains inside the pan. I am getting quite adept at lifting this part out and setting it onto the cake but WHY does this do this? And I thank you for any help! Nancy T. - Texas

I have a recipe for a layer cake that makes 16 large servings. Most occasions don't need such a gigantic cake. I was thinking about cutting the batter in half (the amounts of the ingredients halve evenly) and then baking the layers in smaller diameter pans. The original recipe makes three 9" layers which are then split and filled with mousse. Any suggestions about what size pans I should try. I have seen six inch pans in the store.

Aug. 30, 2010 9:44 am
For pan conversions not listed, you have to do math. There is no other solution; the companies who sell cake mixes already did the math for their batters, so you need to do yours. SORRY! If you are familiar with a baking mix you like, use that as a starting point. I used a digital scale and tare it with a pan on it. I fill the pan to my desired level and find out how much it holds. Then I know how much, say a 9" round holds. Granted, there may be some difference with a batter that is heavier, like carrot cake, but this will get your started. You need to figure the area of the test pan, then figure the circumference of the pan you want to use and figure the difference. I just use the surface, because all my pans are 2" deep, so they are all going to be the same in relation to the top. So, pi (3.14) x radius (half the distance across) squared. 3.14 x 4.5 x 4.5 = 63.5 for a 9". For the 10, it will be 3.15 x 5 x 5 = 78.5. Then you go 78.5 divided by 63.5 and you get the percen

PinkPiranha 
Aug. 30, 2010 9:54 am
Oh- for clarification, using the percentages, if you fill your pan to your desired fill level and it's 450g of batter and you need 20% more to go from 9" to 10", then you do 450g x 1.20 = 540g in the 10" ***also, a round pan is about 3/4 the volume (capacity) of a square of the same size***

My method to print: Highlight area desired; copy; go to your word processer and paste; go up to "edit" and "select all" to choose larger or smaller font, if desired; If you wish, anything can be deleted from this document. Print and/or save. If I save it, I always go back to copy and paste the URL onto the page for reference and/or credit, if needed.

NebrCook: Just leave the nuts out if it's not a significant part/amount of the recipe or substitute the nuts with something of equal volume like dried cranberries, raisins, etc.

sue parker: I know it may be a little late on your question, but a standard serving size is 3x2" or 2x2" in a sheet cake. just use your math to divide up the cake evenly. 19x13 should serve the same as a 1/2 sheet cake approx. 32-48 servings per size above. hope this helps.
 
Shannon_cake 
Oct. 12, 2010 11:35 pm
layna: if the pacaging does not list the volume, you can use a liquid measuring cup to fill the pan with water. then take that measurment to use for your cake mix. standard cake mixes usually run 4-6 cups per box or recipe. You will also want to fill the pan about 2/3 full with batter.

LADY TRUCKER This is a shot in the dark....but we have a family recipe that calls for 3- 8" round baking pans, but we use 2-9" baking pans and a white, corelle, "grab it" bowl instead. I don't know what size the three layer cake was initially, so you may not even be able to use this info. On another note....this is the cake we have used for babies first birthdays for years, because the birthday baby gets a perfectly sized little cake to tear apart, while the adults have a regular birthday cake to slice and serve.

I have a 5 pound cake mix that calls for 6 cups of water and uses a 24x16x1 inch sheet pan. Anyone have a suggestion for converting to family sized recipe?

Is a 9x13 considered a 1/4 sheet?

This conversion table is very useful! Reading it, though, brought back a memory that made me laugh. I was once trying to figure out if a recipe for a particular square cake pan would "fit" into a ring-mold-type baking pan, and my boyfriend at the time decided to impress me with his newly acquired knowledge of calculus by calculating the volume of the ring-mold pan (which is half of a "toroid," I believe it's called). Well, he fussed and he fussed, and I finally got impatient and simply filled both pans with water and then poured the water into my quart measuring cup as many times as necessary to determine the pans' relative volumes!

I was wondering, as thick as pound cake batter is , will it bake properly if I were to put it in a cupcake tin ?

This is from the Wilton site, and should help with baking time/size conversions: http://www.wilton.com/cakes/making-cakes/baking-party-cake-2-inch-pans.cfm

If I have a cake mix and I want to double the recipe and use 2 boxes in a larger pan, Do I need to adjust the temp or just the cooking time?

I'm making a cheesecake recipe that calls for a 9" spring form pan. Mine is a 9 1/2 inch. I've make a dozen calls and 2 trips to the store and can't get a 9" pan. If the recipe calls for 1 hour at 350 how long should I bake it if I use a 9 1/2 inch pan? Cheesecakes are tricky; you can't test with a toothpick like other cake recipes. I'm desperate and need to bake this early tomorrow. It was supposed to be baked today. Thanks.

Who knew there were so many subs for a 10" tube pan....I found the answer I was looking for! This is such a helpful, well organized and easy to read chart. I've made a copy and taped it inside my baking cabinet door.

To Nancy Thurman regarding your cake sticking to the pan when you try to turn it out: Instead of grease and flouring pan, try Wiltons Bake Easy or Baker's Joy non-stick baking spray. After baking, cool for only 10 minutes before turning out. Should slide out perfectly. I am not an expert baker, but my cakes never stick, no matter what kind of pan I use. It is worth a try.

This is a great table except that no mention is made of the DEPTH of each pan. Without that, the table is pretty useless. Please add the depth dimension. THANKS.

How about converting from 3 8" round pans to 2 9" round pans? The volume works but what should change with the temperature and/or cooking time?

I have an English cookbook for cakes and bars. The author uses 7" round and square pans. Do we have equivalent pan sizes for that? I've been making do with a 7" aluminum pan that I have to keep my husband from throwing away! I don't see any sizes like that on this list.How can I make the recipes???

Why isn't 11x9 on the list, or am I missing it? That's a fairly common pan size. It's 3 quarts.

The Bundt pan says it holds 12 cups. Is that measured before or after beating air into the ingredients? Can I just add up the number of cups of ingredients that the recipe calls for before beating them?

I baked a pound cake in my Bundt pan. The top rose an inch or so above the pan but when I took it out of the oven (after 1hour and 15 minutes), the top crust remained high and the rest fell about 1 1/2 inches. I had tested with a toothpick first (in the large crack in the top of the cake) and it was clean. What did I do wrong??
 
Feb. 28, 2013 11:48 am
Or two eight in. round pans = 24 cupcakes/muffins cooked for 20-24 minutes.

Try as I might, I can't make any sense of the math here. Two 8" round pans have an area of exactly 50.24 sq. in. each, or 100.48 sq. in. total. One 10" round pan has an area of exactly 78.5 sq. in. According to the chart, the two 8" pans hold 8 cups of batter, but the 10" pan, which is about 22% smaller, holds 11 cups---almost 40% more batter? I'm mystified.

Aug. 24, 2013 5:53 pm
PamelaJoy, I agree. I think I'm going to do some measuring with pans using water to check volume. Some just don't seem right to me either.
 
Aug. 24, 2013 6:01 pm
To print the chart, highlight it, right click and then hit "copy". Then go to a blank e-mail message and right click "paste". The entire chart copies. Then send the e-mail to yourself and print it. Worked for me...good luck!

I have a recipe which calls for a 25cm Bundt tin. That's 9". But Bundt pans all seem to be 10" (or more). All of your conversions above which mention Bundt pans also refer to 10". Suggestions?

My recipe for Zucchini bread makes five 8x5 bread loaf pans cooked one hour. Need to know how to convert cooking time to small 3x5 loaves. As the current loaves come out about 2 to 3 inched high, can I use the same amount of batter in a smaller pan? Currently putting about 3 1/2 cups to 4 cups of batter in each loaf pan.

My 10" spring form pan requires 5 eight oz. pks of cream cheese. How many more should I use for a 12" pan?
 
Sep. 21, 2014 12:14 pm
The number of cups is very helpful, as I was looking for one pan to replace two 9x5 loaf pans, hence approximately 16 cups. I am going to go with a 9x13 for my banana bread today, simply because I'm too tired and lazy to wash the two loaf pans I used for pull apart pizza bread last night!
