Substituting for 8x12 inch cake pan
I'm looking at the "Night Before Fruit Cake" recipe at Delish. I've not made this recipe, and am intrigued.
It calls for an 8x12 inch cake pan, which I don't have and don't want to buy. (Tiny kitchen, very limited storage space.)
So I'm wondering what size of pan(s) I could use to make this. I'm thinking of putting 3/4 of the batter into an 8x8inch square pan and the remaining 1/4 into an 8.5x4 inch loaf pan. So the cake in the 8.5 loaf pan will needs about half the time in the oven, I'm guessing?
Or I guess I could portion the 1/4 batter into muffin cups?
Does anyone have any other ideas?
