Question for scratch bakers. Should I bake at 325 in a 3" high pan? Will baking (a lemon butter cake) at 350 make a cake that thick dark on the outside because of longer baking time? icon_confused.gif

I mostly use 3" pans and when I bake at home (non-convection) I usually bake at 325... you'll get some browning (it's part of baking), but the lower temp will prevent overbaking on the edges for the extended baking time.
