I make a chocolate banana muffin that my son loves. It is more of a dessert then breakfast . We have been invited to dinner at his apartment with all his college friends TONIGHT! I'm bringing dessert. Individual muffins/cupcakes are easier to eat and I know how long they have to cook, but decorated cakes always look more impressive. My recipe make 12 muffins and I'm doubling it. How many cake layers do you think a 12 muffin/cupcake recipe makes? Yikes, What to do?!? What do you think?
Help! How to convert a muffin recipe to a cake?

Good day to you. You forgot to list the size of the cake pan ie, 8,inch X 2,inch deep...If we know that then we can help you
that is if you post back on a timely basis. Also you might add is it a 2 or a 3 layer cake you are interested in baking????
Till then enjoy the weekend.
Without knowing the size of your pans, and how full you fill them, it's hard to answer the question.
My suggestion is put the muffin pan in a 9 x 13 pan and fill each hole with water to the level you would normally would fill it with muffin batter.
Then empty the pan into the 9 x 13 pan.
Now, pour the water into your cake pan and see how high it goes.
When I do this with my muffin pan, filling each hole pretty much to the brim then dumping it in my round cake pans, I get about 1 1/8" of water in a 9" cake pan and not quite 1.5 inches of water in my 8" cake pan, but your results could differ quite a bit from mine.
Thanks all. I cooked the batter in 2-8 inch pans. I like tall cakes and would have preferred 2-6" pans. But it seems to have come out fine.
Yeah, I can appreciate that. I have some 6" pans that are three inches tall that I got at a bakery auction several years ago. I've done souffles in them several times.
