I cook mine in the oven, as for the measurements it depends on the size of the bowl

do you make your cakes from scratch or a box mix?

Ok then I might be able to help, just get your bowls out and put the doll against it to choose the size. If you let me know the size of the bowl I may be able to help

I go by how many eggs there are in your recipe, I would use a recipe that requires 2 eggs and cook in the oven.

I use my pyrex bowls all the time for balls and barbie dresses. I fill the bowl about 2/3 of the way up. I bake at 300. Time varies depending on what kind of cake I am making and which bowl I am using. I usually start out at 40 mins. It almost always takes more time. Make sure you spray it with cooking spray and remove from the bowl after about 5 minutes. I have left the cake in the bowl longer and it seems to soak up lots of moisture and becomes soggy. Good luck!!

I use a doctored WASC cake most of the time(family favorite). One betty crocker cake mix, 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup sour cream, 3 eggs, 1 cup of water, 1 tbsp almond, 1 tbsp vanilla. (I omit the sugar that most people put in the WASC. I have diabetics in the family and try to keep out as much of the stuff I can get away with.) This will make 2 of the 1L pyrex bowls. If I only need one, I make cupcakes to give away. Sorry I don't have a scratch recipe that I have tried with it. HTH
