You can absolutely use wax paper. Do you have that?
really? Even thought it's going in a 350 oven? In a water bath?

When I make brownies I line my pan with aluminum foil instead of parchment I am not 100% on this but wonder if foil would be a viable alternative to parchment for your cake. I have used wax paper before with good results but have to admit it wasn't in a recipe that used a water bath. I butter the aluminum foil and it works well for brownies.
Just used the wax paper...will report back after my run!
My mother always used waxed paper, so do I. I'm sure it'll work for you.

maybe too late, but I use foil when I run out of parchment. Shiny side up.
I use wax paper in a situation like this as long as the wax paper will be completely covered by whatever you're baking. Good luck!
The result? Epic fail! Maybe because I had already greased the bottom of the pan (what I do when I use parchment) and then again on top of the wax paper? Dunno, but it came out in a million pieces. Still delicious though! Thanks everyone for your help!
There are three reasons to ask for paper bags at your grocery store: One is so that you can make caramel popcorn in the microwave; another is so that you have something on which to drain fried chicken or egg rolls; and the third is that paper bags are an awesome substitute for parchment. Keep a sack or two handy.
probably too late, but if I'm using a round cake pan I usually line it with a coffee filter. the flat bottom ones fit perfectly and the butter from the pan seeps through a bit so nothing sticks
gina_berthold-- that is a great tip. Foodpickler of the week worthy.
LisaCooks-- wax paper is perfectly fine if it is completely covered by batter. it wouldn't have affected the outcome. You just can't use wax paper when it is exposed, like for cookies, because it will burn
