Topic: 8x3 pans
fredostreats 04/11/2011 2:44 PM
My local discount store are now selling FD 8x3 round pans starting at 6.99 and up. I am considering of getting some the pricing is really good compared to the online prices and other places I've seen but I wanna know what is the baking temperature and how long do I have to baked them in?

How many amount of batter should go in them or can I follow wilton baking chart?

And is it neccessary to get? I only baked in 2inch pans so far

What were your experience like?

Sorry for all the questions at once just curious to know

I don't use 3" pans. However, I would think that your baking time will be longer due to the amount of added batter. I would keep your temp. at 325 degrees.

Here you go! Wilton must be re-doing their website as the location of these links TOGETHER keeps changing lately. Just cut and past the link below in your browser. The only difference I have seen is the serving size. The charts are pretty self explanatory.

I have the 8x3 round pan and love it! I don't use 8x2.

I use box mixes generally and with a box mix and a bake even strip it is one mix for a 8x3 pan. I then cut the cake to fill it instead of stacking to separate cakes.

I LOVE the 8 x 3 pan! When using an entire cake mix (I like Betty) , I bake it at 325, using a bake even strip, it takes 63 minutes to bake it in my oven (my oven is electric). HTH!
