Double the cake recipe or bake two?

Deenso | Mar 27, 2013 07:14 AM

I'm making dessert for a large family reunion lunch on Easter and have chosen Bon Appetit's "Double Banana Cake." (

It's a round 2-layer cake that's supposed to serve 16, so I have a choice to make: can I double the recipe, bake half in each of two rectangular pans instead of four round ones, and serve it up as one large 2-layer cake - as opposed to two standard, round cakes? Would the bake time be affected?
