I have a whopper of a cake to do this weekend and I would love to be able to double my recipes. I've always thought that you couldn't double pound cake recipes, but I just wondered if anyone has and what the results were. Bowl size is not a factor.

Didn't Duff do that for the record setting cupcake? This would save me a ton of time.

My basic pound cake recipe makes 6 cups of batter so I double it all the time for a two layer ten inch round cake - good luck!

Don't know if you want to try a new recipe for a big order.... But here's a large batch recipe that you could at least use for comparison purposes (of one of your recipes doubled or tripled):

Thank you both for your help. I have a great chocolate # recipe and I doubled it last night. It worked like a charm. It has a total of 10 ingredients, so measuring 10 things rather than 20 saved me a lot of time.

BTW-this weekend's wedding cake is 11 tiers, so I didn't want to have to rebake tiers. I have each night scheduled to get it done on time (since I work FT during the day) and didn't want to be off schedule OR waste ingredients if it didn't work.

Thanks again guys.
