I hate waiting for each cake to bake. Does anyone, or all of you, bake both of your cakes (ex. 2 8" pans) at once? How do you adjust the time, temp.? Do they turn out as well or is it better to bake each one individually? I have a regular home oven. TIA.

I bake as many cakes as I can fit on the top rack. The temp and time don't change and the cakes will usually get done at the same time. I have noticed that different brands of pan take different amounts of time 10" wilton pan takes a few minutes longer than my 10" magic line.

I will also bake different sizes at the same time if I need more than one size. Set the timer for the smaller one and then just set the timer for the rest of the time that the bigger one needs once the smaller one is done.

I have a regular home oven too, electric.

I bake 2 at a time sometimes, just make sure that the pans don't touch and they will probably need to bake a little longer. I have even put 3 pans in at the same time without a problem

I bake up to three pans on one rack. I do not adjust the temp, but I watch the time more closely. I've loaded top and bottom racks with poor results, so i wouldn't suggest this. Nothing wrong with baking two 8" at the same time.

I bake up to 3 cakes at a time.
Like everyone else said- just don't get them touching.

Do it all the time. Set your timer for the least amount of time they will take and then start watching... no biggie.

I load up all three racks in my home oven. icon_biggrin.gif Everything just takes different times to cook, I set my timer for the lowest time and then just check them and take them out as they get done. I also usually try to switch the bottom ones up partway through cooking so the bottom doesn't get too dark.

Sure beats doing one thing at a time!
