Cake in a Pie Dish?

plateofwander | Mar 1, 2009 07:39 PM

I'm living in a small city in China. My American co-worker's birthday is next week, and I want to bake him a cake. The problem is I don't have a cake pan, only a glass pie dish. How should I adjust for this? I made a cake in the glass dish over Christmas; the cake came out sunken and a little dense (but still yummy). However, I'm not sure if that was the pan or (more likely) the fact that I had no access to baking soda at the time (I have since obtained some).
So does the glass pie dish matter? I feel like it must, I'm just not sure how, and my searches aren't turning up much of anything. Thanks!
