cake recipes for large cakes

Thanks to you, I have many great recipes. I'd like to know if I can double these recipes for larger cakes or are there special recipes for large cakes?

From the editor:


There aren't special recipes as such, just a few tricks you need to know:

1. Make sure that your mixer is up to the task. Unless you have a 6 quart, or larger, stand mixer, I wouldn't recommend doing any more than 1 1/2 times a recipe. You'll end up over mixing the batter and the cake won't rise properly.

2. Follow the directions for the original recipe - don't double the time for beating/creaming butter and sugar etc. just because you have double the ingredients. Another reason it's important to make sure your mixer can handle the increased volume.

3. Stop the mixer and scrape the sides of the bowl often so that all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

4. Bake using the same oven temperature. Just increase the baking time if you're using larger pans. For pan sizes over 10" in diameter, use a heating core.

Good luck.
