Hi Renee,
Welcome to DC!

I second Licia, don't see why it wouldn't work, just line the tin first for easy removal.

I would guess that two 8 or 9 inch round pans would equal one 13x9 inch pan. Try to keep the square inches of pan about the same so the cake would be the same thickness. To compare baking times, check the directions on a box of cake mix and note the time given for each size pan so you can adjust the time you bake your two rounds, which I'm guessing would be a few minutes less than a cake baked in one larger pan.

Welcome to Discuss Cooking, renee. You've already gotten some very good answers here but I'm going to move your post to the Desserts thread.

Here's a link to a recipe using 3 9-inch round pans.

Good luck!

For another idea, whenever I make pineapple upside down cake, I cook it in an oven-proof skillet. It's much larger in diameter than a round pan, and because the sides are thicker than reg. cake pans, it seems to cook more evenly. I don't see why it wouldn't work for your cake.
