If my ring cake recipe calls for a tube pan, can I bake it in a regular cake pan, or even loaf pans?
Question: Also, if the recipe calls for shortening, can I substitute applesauce or will that just ruin the whole thing?
Answer: you can bake a cake recipe in whatever you want! you'll just need to adjust the cooking time accordingly. I'm guessing that your cake will cook faster in a regular pan than a tube pan because the batter is more spread out. Bake it for 25 minutes, then check with a toothpick every
