Topic: Bake Decorate Celebrate's Mini Lemon Pound cake - pan size
YOFJAB 01/16/2011 11:47 AM
On the Bake Decorate Celebrate web site, I saw this recipe for a Mini Lemon Pound cake. But it does not say what size pan to use? The picture they use is round-looks small. It also says this recipe can be doubled but since I don't know what the original pan size is --I have no idea what the double size would be?
Any ideas?

This recipe makes one cup of batter. I would guess that this would be about right for a small individual loaf pan like the ones in the mini or petite loaf pans. It might be good in a larger muffin tin too. Two cups of batter might be ok for disposable aluminum little loaf pans. Or a single layer 6" cake. Hope this helps.

yes---it gives me good guidelines cakedujour------appreciate it...... I never made a pound cake, I might try to double it and use one of those aluminum loaf pans...one little loaf would not do in this house.
I never made a loaf pan --- Does the batter rise? I mean if I use the sides of whatever pan I decide on, would the pan be half full of batter or 3/4 's.

One little loaf is all you're going to get, even doubled. Wilton posts another recipe for a larger, family sized recipe. Here is the link:

This one should be suitable in a bundt pan or regular loaf pan. The batter will rise but the cake will likely take a little longer to bake due to the depth of the pan. Half to 2/3 full of batter will leave room for the cake to rise.
