Instructions: Place a mixing bowl on your digital scale and press tare. Fill the bowl with your cake batter, and then weigh the bowl again.

Calculate half the weight of the batter: This is the amount you want in each pan.

Spray two non-stick cake pans with oil, and place a round of parchment paper in the bottom of each pan.

Place one empty cake pan on the scale, and press tare. Pour half the cake batter, by weight, into the pan. Repeat with the remaining batter and pan.

If necessary, adjust the amount of batter in each pan until they’re exactly equal.

Use an offset spatula to smooth the top of the batter in each pan.

Bake according to your recipe.
