I have a question about the recipe "Cardamom Crumb Cake" from Dorie Greenspan. Has anyone increased the recipe and baked in a bigger pan? I'm thinking 1.5x recipe in a 9x13 for Christmas brunch.

I haven't multiplied this one, but yes other cake recipes.
The 9x13 pan has about 15 cups volume compared to 8 cups for the 8x8 square.
To stay with your 1.5x find a pan with 12 cup capacity (9" spring form or two regular 9" round baking pans).
Or to stay with the 9x13 rectangle, double the recipe and if you have a little too much batter, bake it in a cup.
See one article from here and a chart from allrecipes to make your decision.

Michelle, Nancy is right about doubling recipe. I hope you enjoy it - Merry Christmas! - Dorie
Dorie - so nice to hear from you. Also gives me an occasion to thank you and Pierre Herme for your Pain d'epice, which I now make every year for Rosh Hashanah.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!
