HELPFUL CAKE PAN CONVERSIONS

You never need to adjust the oven temperature: cakes need to bake quickly in a relatively hot oven to set their structure and to make sure they don't dry out. You only need to adjust the baking time. If you’re using a smaller pan with the same volume of batter (using an 11"x8" pan instead of 13"x9"), you're actually making a deeper cake, so it might take a little longer to bake. I'd still start checking it after 30 minutes: the cake should spring back
