I was very disappointed in the amount of batter for the size pan you have in recipe. I reduced the pan size to a regular 13x9 cake pan. There was only 4 cups batter and for a 15x10x1 you need 8 cups. I don't see anywhere that says to double the recipe for that size pan. It's in the oven, will let you know how it turns out :)
