Scalling up (or down) Mrs Jones vanilla cake

Hi,

Can someone please tell me how to scale the vanilla cake when it uses two tins? I have the conversion chart which I use for normal recipes but don’t understand how to use it for a two tin recipe.

Thank you

Good Morning jlrickard1

If you are still going to be using two tins for a scaled recipe use the same factor as if it were scaling for one tin. It is the amount of ingredients which are being increased or decreased and not the number of tins. I hope I have understood your question properly. If I haven’t please post again so I can get it right. 🙂

Sorry to be a pain ha, but what would I do if I wanted to scale it right down to one tin? I made a coffee cake adapted from my normal vanilla cake recipe but it wasn’t great so I just want to trial this recipe in a 6″ tin. Is it possible to scale it down in this way? Thank you

It depends how tall you need the cake to be. If your tin is deeper than the standard 3″ just scale it in the same way and use all of the batter in the one tin. If your tin is 3″ deep, reduce the ingredients by a quarter. Let me know if this helps, so sorry for such a late reply.
