If a cake recipe calls for a pan size you don't have, here are suggested stand-ins for any size pans. If in doubt, move to a slightly larger pan, not a smaller one, to avoid overflows (batter should fill the bottom one-half to two-thirds of the pan). Remember when you change baking pans, the baking time will vary, so check for signs of doneness, cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean and the top springs back when lightly pressed.

If You Don't Have This Pan: Try this Pan: Or this Pan:
