Default Question about baking: springform pans

Cook it only 5 minutes... I don't think so.

Don't you mean how much *less* time to cook the smaller cake?

Between a 10" and 8" there's a big difference in volume, do not use
the entire recipe in the smaller pan... but it would probably require
only a few minutes less cooking time... check with a toothpick.

Check a flourless cake with a toothpick?

I checked the web for flourless cakes:


4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

I don't know what that is, but it certainly doesn't sound like something
I'd think of as cake. Then again, soap comes in cakes, so I'm wrong.
