Was wondering if some people could help me, n sorry if this is an obvious question. I have a 4" cake tin and of course I cannot find a recipe for it.

How would i go about filling it it as simple as halving a 8" cake recipe and halving the baking time? Or is it more complicated?

I'm assuming 4" round not high. It will take a little less time, depends on your oven and the temp you cook it at. I would keep an eye on it, check it at 20-25' minutes and go from there. If you bake from scratch then you can 1/2 your recipe and should be fine if your recipe is by weight.

Just one more question what do you mean by if the recipe is by weight?

Recipes are either by weight pounds, ounces, grams, etc. or by volume cup, tsp, etc. Weight is more accurate, if the recipe is by cups sometimes they don't turn out as well when the reciped is cut. I was thinking more of a box that would be a little difficult to cut in half. If a box recipe I would make the whole box and not try to reduce it to half.
