Moist Cake Recipe

Hi, this might sound like a silly question, I am attempting to make the teddy bear cake and wanted to know if the online free recipe for the chocolate moist cake will fit in the recommended rectangular cake tin “8-10”? or do i need to adjust this?

Thank you very much

I personally calculate the volume by maths and then adjust but madeitwithlove put a good explanation of how to do this on a previous question but I can’t find it. I am sure she will answer when she sees your question.

I try to find the volume for round cakes
To do this it’s pi (3.14)

Eg if the recipe you have is for 10″ round which is 3″ deep and you want to make a 12″ round 3 deep

10″ = 3.14 x 5 x 5 x 3 = 235
12″ = 3.14 x 6 x 6 x 3 = 339
Divide the volume of of cake size you want by original
339/235 = 1.44 (round to 1 1/2) so all ingredients would be multiplied by 1 1/2

For an 8″ it would be

3.14 x 4 x 4 x 3 =151
So 151/235 = 0.65 so times ingredients by this.

For square cakes
10″ = 10 x 10 x 3 = 300
12″ = 12 x 12 x 3 = 432
432/300 = 1.44 so use 1 1/2 x the ingredients

8″ = 8 x 8 x 3 = 192
192/300 = 0.64 x the ingredients.

Hope not too confusing as it confused me whilst typing it lol x

Hi Meeraben

The answer is under ‘ingrediant’ (spell it this way if you use the search box other wise it will not take you there).
There is also a ready reckoner in blog. Just click on blog and scroll down to how to change tin sizes. Jayess has also given you a very good explanation. x
