Hi,
I am baking an 11x15 cake for the first time, i am scared that it will not be baked in The center. What temperature should i bake it at?

hi, bake it at 325 with metal flower nail(2) spaced out. spray the flower nail, place upside down in pan, pour in your batter. after it bakes, and cools for a little bit, turn out on cooling rack , take out nail. these nails distibutes heat to the center of the cake , helping it to bake even. hth

I use one big flower nail or two smaller flower nails when I bake my 11x15 or 12x18 cakes, in fact just baked one tonight! I also bake my bigger cakes at 25 degrees less than I normally would...works GREAT!

Ditto - 325 and the flower nail..if you have no flower nail, the 325 alone should work fine.

I like to use a heating core, and reduce temp as well icon_smile.gif

I reduce to 325; use baking strips; no nails; and definitely no cores. Grease only, don't flour the pans to allow the cake to rise really high.
