Question Math problem

Math problem: Recipe for cake calls for TWO 9" pans filled with batter. What size pan should I use if I just want one pan of cake?

Trying to keep the amount of ingredients intact. This recipe is from Babbo's Pan di Spagna web site.

By 9" do you mean round pan, or 9 X 13" pan. If it is the later you can use the full size witch I think is 13 x 18".
Depending on type of the pan there could be problem with the batter being too thick and then it may not bake properly.

I still remembered my 10th grade geometry formulas, although I did not take into account volume, but area only. But that should be close enough.

I love Math..

but if you make enough batter, then fill your "Nine Inch Pan about 1/2 way full"

then eat the rest of the Raw Batter with your Kids!
