Would a cake pan work instead of tube pan?

Hi, my preschooler has requested a chocolate cake for his upcoming birthday. I’m planning to make this cake but wondered if a regular 9-inch cake or springform pan would work? Thanks so much!

Hi Jules, a tube pan works best because getting heat through the center helps the cake cook through evenly and quickly. However a 9 inch cake pan or springform pan will definitely work! And many people like to split the batter into 2 cake pans so they don't have to cut the cake into layers.
