I have to make about 10 batches of a cake recipe. Is it ok to double the recipe to save time? I'm just not sure when it comes to things like baking powder. I figured everything else is OK.
FYI- the recipe calls for 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder.
Please...any help on this would be great.

Thanks!

It's perfectly fine to double a recipe, double everything exactly, even the baking powder. Just make sure though, that you have room in your mixer for that much.

I agree. Then again, you'll know after baking the first batch whether or not it will work.

I QUADRUPLE my recipes. I just use a bit less salt then x4. I have always had success with this. Good luck.

So did you have enough room in your mixer?
