I have a receipe for a rich butter cake which requires 6oz of butter and the sugar, 3 eggs, 8oz plain flour, tbsp milk and 1,5 tsp baking powder. it tells you to use a 8" tin.  I have baked this cake before and it barely reached 3/4 height of a 6" tin once baked.  How much batter shall I make to bake a 12" square cake?  I am thinking x 5 the reciepe but I am not sure its enough.

5x the recipe should be enough if you go by the wilton chart:

You could always do 6x just in case, and trim any excess from the top.
