Baking Times, Batter Amounts & Number of Servings

One cake mix yields 4 to 5 1/2 cups of batter. Pans are usually filled 1/2 to 2/3 full; 3″ deep pans should be filled only 1/2 full. Batter amounts on these charts are for pans 2/3 full of batter. For large cakes, always check for doneness after they have baked for 1 hour.


Note: For Pans 11″ and larger, use a heating core when baking.
The charts below show baking information and serving amounts for both 2-inch pans and 3-inch high pans. The figures for 2-inch pans are based on a 2-layer or 4-inch depth cake. The figures for 3-inch pans are based on a 1-layer cake which has been torted and filled to reach a 3-inch depth.
The serving amounts listed are based on party-sized portions of approximately 1-1/2 x 2 inches or wedding-sized portions which are cut smaller, about 1 x 2 inches. You may wish to cut larger or smaller pieces, depending on whether you are using a 4-inch layer or a 3-inch layer.
The number of servings given is meant as a guide only.
