AI read on Wilton's that a 2 inch 9x13 pan takes 7 cups of batter...a book I have and AllRecipes say 14 cups...which is accurate???

If you own a 9x13x2 pan, you can measure how much water it holds. That gives you the total pan volume. When you put cake batter in a pan, however, you do not fill it to the top. That might be the discrepancy you point out.

A7 cups is accurate, the book you're referring to is probably saying 14 if you planned on doing two 9x13 double layered
