Cake to cupcake conversion

L nrs Dec 3, 2008 02:09 PM

I'd like to make the cake for my daughter's birthday, but doing cupcakes would be so much easier! I've got a banana cake recipe that I love. It's baked in a 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes in a 9x13 inch pan.

Any suggestions for needed timing or temperature changes?

    I do my conversions using the temperature specified in the recipe but reduce the cooking time slightly. In the case you describe I might do a donness check at about 20 - 25 minutes.

      Please let us know what works. I want to do the same conversion with a similar recipe I love. Banana cupcakes would be excellent!

        In case anyone is curious, I used regular size cupcake cups and they were done in 20 minutes (at 350 degrees).
