Baking in rectangular or square pan

I know someone else asked but I am interested in making a sheet cake out of it? Do you know if I need to change proportions or how to adjust baking times ?

Thank you

Jenna

Hi Jenna! I've not yet done this, but KAF has a guide that looks pretty solid: https://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2019/10/28/how-to-make-sheet-cake-from-a-layer-cake-recipe

Looks like the batter for this recipe will fit in one 9x13x2" pan, and that baking time will actually increase by 30-40%.

Two 8-inch squares would be the same as 2 9-inch rounds. For a sheet pan, you may end up with slightly more batter than will comfortably fit in a 13x9. (Fill a ramekin or mug and make yourself a secret cupcake—we won't tell!). The proportions and temperature should remain the same, but you'll want to go by smell, look, and maybe a toothpick test rather than the time indicated for doneness.

Also, the sheer pan cske will likely finish sooner because the cake is substantially lower in height than from layer cake pans.
