    Should I extend the bake time if I use 8-inch pans instead of 9-inch?

    I can not find the Bakers German chocolate at any store in our area. Is there something I can use to replace it for a German Chocolate cake?
     
  3. Mary L.
    Do you seriously melt the German Sweet Chocolate bar IN the water?!
     
  4. sherryoconnor
    Do I whip all the egg whites from the cake recipe and the frosting recipe or just the 4 egg whites?
     
  5. James H.
    Why Did Bakers Stop Printing The Original Recipe On The Box? Doesnt Make Any Sense.
