Revised cooking time?

Postby slimpersoninside » January 9th, 2019, 9:49 pm

I have a book of Traybakes that has some recipes I really fancy giving a try, unfortunately they make a 14 x 10 inch cake which is a bit too much for us. I have a tin half this size which would suit us. My question is does anyone have any idea what the cooking time would be e.g. quarter, third, half, threequarters of the original. I realise it will be a bit of trial and error but an idea of a starting point would really help.

Thank you.

I would guess there would be no change to the baking time, as the depth of the cake is the biggest factor in cooking time, especially with traybakes, and that won't be any different.

At the most, check 10 minutes before the suggested time, if it's over 45 minutes, and 5 minutes earlier for a lower baking time.
