Cake Pan Questions Answered!

  1. Can I use a springform cake pan to bake a boxed cake mix?

    My springform pan is just the size I need for the birthday cake I want to make, however I am not certain if you can put regular cake mix in a springform pan without it running out the bottom. I have never used a springform cake pan before, but I do know they are typically used for cheesecakes and the like. So, if I put a boxed cake mix in the springform pan, will it turn out as if I used a regular pan? Or should I just make do with my other cake pans and improvise to get what I need, so I spare myself a potential mess from the springform pan? Thanks for your advice!

  2. Can you Exchange 1 kind cake pan for another?

    I have a carrot cake recipe that calls for it to be baked in 2 10-inch round cake pans. However, I need to make a sheet cake. My questions are: 1) is it even possible to exchange the 2 10-inch round pans for 1 rectangular pan; 2) if so, what size rectangular pan should I use; and 3) how much of an effect on my cooking time will occur?

  3. Can you bake angel food cake in a regular cake pan?

    I'm proposing to my girlfriend this weekend and her favorite cake is angel food cake. What I wanted to do was cook the angel food cake in a regular (deeeeep) baking dish, and hollow out a space on the bottom to put the ring box. I know that angel food is normally made in the pan with the hole in the center -- will it taste bad or turn out wrong if I use a normal deep baking pan instead? Thanks in advance!

  5. How to adjust cheesecake from two 9" springforms to one 13x9 cake pan?

    I normally make my cheesecakes in two 9" springform pans. I butter up the insides of the pans liberally so the cake separates from the pan easily. My crust is basically a liberal amount of butter and crushed Famous Amos cookies. I bake the two cakes at the same time for 3 hours at 200 degrees. What adjustments should I make if I want to bake one cake in a 13x9x2 glass cake pan?

  10. When you bake, do you put flour on the bottom of the cake pan?

    Is that still necessary? I have read online that 'greasing' the pan is enough. I think I read somewhere that someone doesn't do anything! What do you do? I am greasing bottom of pan and then using flour, you know..the "old fashioned" way but it is a pain in the butt. I just hate it because tonight some of the flour was forming like little balls with the oil I had put on on the bottom of the cake pan and there was hardly any there!! So I had to wash out two cake pans before putting in the batter and then start all over. Seriously, the cake pan is part, getting it ready for baking is the most work.

  25. How do I keep blueberries from sinking to the bottom of my cake pan when baking a cake?

    I make a blueberry pound cake with fresh berries that I pick myself. The recipe calls for a Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines Butter Recipe yellow cake, cream cheese, eggs, water and the fresh blueberries. The recipe is very simple. All the ingredients are combined and then the blueberries are gently folded into the batter. It is baked in a bundt pan at 350 for about 50 minutes. The problem is that all the berries sink to the bottom of the pan so when the caked is inverted all of the berries are at the top of the cake. They should be evenly disbursed throughout the cake. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong in the preperation or if my oven is messin' with me. I've even tried rolling the berries in flour before folding them in. It's a great cake with the berries at the top, but better when they are all through it. Any suggestions????

  26. How do I bake a 2-layer cake with one cake pan?

    I need to bake a 2-layer 10-inch cake, but I only have one 10-inch cake pan. What is the best way to go about this? One time I had to let the batter sit for 30 minutes, because I had discovered my milk had spoiled and had to get more at the store. It turned out flat and dense. I'm afraid that will happen to the second layer if I leave it waiting for the first, and I'm reluctant to do it by half because I thought I'd heard somewhere that some recipes don't divide well. It is a feathery light chocolate cake that is leavened with baking powder, and you have to fold in 3 egg whites. If I do the whole recipe, I think I'll at least hold off on whipping the whites until the minute I need them. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks everyone
