Hi all,

I have been looking, and have had no luck...

Is there a chart out there that lists baking times & temps for the different pan sizes? Specifically i'm using a FD 11x15x3. I found a chart for them that lists batter amounts for each pan. I only assume bake times & possibly temps would be affected when using the larger pan sizes.

Thanks!

I don't know if there is a chart on CC (someone else might be able to answer this), but there are charts in the Wilton Yearbooks and the Whimsical Bakehouse book offers charts also.

These times, temps, batter quantities and icing quantities are listed in each Wilton yearbook also.

I thought FD had adjustment recommendations for their pans (I could be wrong but, I thought it was due to how they're made...coated or something)...they bake somewhat differently than ML or Wilton of the same size.

I don't know if this is the same as Wilton's but it was a 'click here' link on the FD pan page at Ultimate Baker

It's called fill the pan 1/2 - 2/3 full, bake till done.

Unforunately, this is the method I've adopted. lol. The Wilton chart may be helpful to let you know how much batter you may need overall. However, I've found charts with varying information. I dont measure anything out when filling the pan. I eyeball it.

yep. I haven't used a timer in years. baking times are merely suggestions anyway and will diff based on each individual oven.

Bake about a dozen cakes and you won't need to use a timer either! thumbs_up.gif

Thanks guys,

Yeah I was kinda thinking it would be a "bake till done" thing Just wasn't sure if there was something out there to gauge it by.

Appreciate it!

I still set a timer, but I have learned that in my oven, an 11x15 will be done perfectly in 35 minutes, and a 12X18 takes about 45 minutes. I think it is all about knowing your pans and your oven. I set the timer because I tend to get caught up in other things and forget about the oven. icon_lol.gif

It seems like baking time is different for different recipes too...WASC takes longer to cook than a box mix cake in the same size pan, at least in my oven. I keep a chart of how long different things take to bake but when I move and have a different oven, I have to start my chart all over again.

*sigh*. I was afraid of that. When do I have time to do each recipe a dozen times to get it just right - on top of having so many different recipes that I want to try. I just want to bake a cake and get started on the fun part - decorating it. And, I'd much rather be spending that $ on cake toys.
