# Recipe scaling

I would like to better understand how to scale-up a cake recipe. I have a recipe that calls for 3 6" pans and I want to bump it up to make 2 larger squares.

If you know how much batter will fill 2 6" pans, given the volume of the pan you want to use as well as that of the 6" round pans, you can easily calculate the percentage increase to fill the square pan.
