How do I turn cake into mini loaves?
Today, I am testing my holiday baking recipes and would like to make Paula Deen's gooey pumpkin cake and turn it into mini-loaves. Do I need to alter the recipe? The cake's bake time is 50 minutes. How long should my mini loaves take?
Since we have a small household, I tend to convert all my cake recipes for use in mini cake pans or muffin pans as well. In my experience, you don't need to alter the recipe, just bake less.
Generally, I found that cakes bake between 10-20 minutes, depending on how small the pans are. I've never made the gooey pumpkin cake, but I imagine you would want to start checking the cake around 8-10 minutes for doneness. I suspect they'll be done in about 15-20 min, but like I said, I've never made that recipe before. Good luck.
