Figuring 3 times the ingredients called for, I used TWO 9" X 13" pans, instead of THREE 9" X 9" pans.

They sunk on me, and I did not open the oven. I set the timer for the maximum time on the recipe, and figured I could look in at that time, and extend the time. Then I could use a cake tester.

IT FAILED!

Could the problem be that I didn't increase the temperature?

Could it be that the aluminum pans expanded, whereas a regular square pan would not do that?

I was in the other room and I heard a sound, like a pan expanding and nobody opened the oven!
