I'm making a few cakes with doctored box mixes. The pan size calls for an odd number of cups of batter. I'll have to double or triple the recipe. I'll end up with leftover batter. That's ok though because I need to make a few cakes.
Is it ok to let the extra sit while I cook the first? I'm going to have to juggle pans and oven space.
I do this quite often because I only have a limited number of pans. You shouldn't have a problem unless your kitchen is really warm.
Sure, I do it...... I just let the batter sit on the counter while I am waiting.. I prefer not to do it this way, but that's better than wasting the batter...

. . . my experience with this is the cakes that are baked with the batter that "waited" actually turn out better than the ones that went immediately into the oven . . .
i've put my extra batter in a sealed container over night in the fridge...when I bake those the next day...they seem better than what I put in the oven at first! truly!
i am glad to hear that i can leave extra batter on the kitchen counter while the others bake!
