Then, are two 8×8 pans equal a 9×13?
You’re really in luck when it comes to using an 8×8 pan: it’s almost exactly half the size of your larger casserole dish! A 13×9 pan measures 117 square inches of surface area, which will hold about 14 cups of food. The 8×8 pan’s 64 inches of surface area can contain up to 8 cups.
Furthermore, can I use a 9 pan instead of 8?
Think about whether the recipe should even be changed.
The batter is not finicky, and because you’re not worried about them rising much, you can easily use a 9-inch pan instead of an 8-inch or vice versa.
Can I use a 9×5 pan instead of 8×8?
For example, if a recipe calls for baking in an 8×8 pan (64 square inch bottom) but you have a 9×5 loaf pan (45 square inches), the batter is going to be almost 1-1/2 times as deep. (To figure this, divide the original pan size in square inches by the new pan size = 64/45 = 1.4).
Just increase the oven temp by 25 degrees F and decrease the bake time by a quarter. In this particular example, since your pan is 1 inch larger, more surface area will be exposed. The liquid in the cake batter will evaporate quicker, which means it will bake faster.
Baking Pan Sizes
|Approximate Pan Dimensions (inches)||Approximate Volume (cups)||Approximate Pan Dimensions (centimeters) (cm)|
|8 x 8 x 1 1/2 in.||6 cups||20 x 20 x 4 cm|
|8 x 8 x 2 inches||8 cups||20 x 20 x 5 cm|
|9 x 9 x 1 1/2 in.||8 cups||23 x 23 x 4 cm|
|9 x 9 x 2 inches||10 cups||23 x 23 x 5 cm|
It depends on what else we’re having, and how hungry everyone is, but it’s about six or so servings.
An 8” square pan and 9” round pan can be used interchangeably for cake and bar recipes.
9×3 inch tube pans are the standard size. I have a few that are 8 inch and 10 inch and most recipes using tube pans fit nicely in all. 9×3 inch tube pan holds 12 cups of batter, the same as 10×2 inch square pan, 12×17 inch jelly roll pan, and a 10×2.5 inch springform pan.
The easiest pan substitution you can make is a 9-inch round and an 8-inch square. What is this?
|Pan Size||Volume||Use Instead|
|8″ x 2″ round||6 cups||8″ x 8″ x 2″ square pan 10″ x 1.5″ pie plate 11″ x 7″ x 2″ rectangular pan|
|9″ x 2″ round||8 cups||8″ x 8″ x 2″ square pan 9″ x 5″ x 3″ loaf pan|
8 x 8 = 64 square inches.
