How Much Batter Do I Need?

For 1″ or 2″ deep pans you will want to fill them so they are 1/2 full of batter. With pans that are 3″ or 4″ deep the batter needs to be 2/3 full in the pan.
Here's a Cake Batter Capacity Chart for Fat Daddio's pans that will help determine how much batter you will need. 
On occasion you may need the batter capacity for a certain recipe or a special pan. Here is a quick method to calculate how much batter a pan will hold. Fill the pan to the brim with water. Use a measuring cup to determine how much you poured. Subtract 1/2 the amount of water from the total to determine capacity for 1″ or 2″ deep pans and subtract 1/3 the total amount for pans that are 3″ or 4″ deep.
