Cake pan size help please

I have a couple of recipes that are usually baked in larger pans and I need to make smaller cakes - 6 or 7 inch pans. Do I need to adjust baking temps?

Here are the two recipes and instead of one larger cake, I want to make 2 smaller ones for each recipe. What changes do I need to make?


Carrot cake - usually baked @350 in 3 pans (9 inch).

2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 eggs
2 C sugar
3/4 C vegetable oil
3/4 C buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 C grated carrot
1 (8-oz) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 C unsweet coconut
1 C chopped pecans/walnuts

Chocolate Stout Cake baked at 350 in one 9 inch cheese cake pan
1 cup stout beer
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup sour cream
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

You don't need to change the temp, but you will need to reduce the time. Here's more info: https://food52.com/blog/13239-how-to...-your-pan-size
