A 9×13-inch pan holds between 12 and 14 cups and has 117 square inches of surface area. Therefore, halving pretty much any recipe that goes into a 9×13-inch pan means that you need a pan that holds between 6 and 8 cups and has about 60 square inches of surface area.
For example; you could substitute a 8 x 8 inch (20 x 20 cm) square pan (which is 64 square inches), for a 9 inch (23 cm) round pan (which is 63.5 square inches), without changing the baking time or oven temperature stated in the original recipe.
A 9-inch round cake pan is 63.5 square inches/holds 8 cups of batter. A 10-inch round cake pan is 78.5 square inches/holds 10-11 cups of batter.
