I recently made a 9" madeira cake using the recipe from "DannaHaz" on this thread, but it was perfectly cooked after exactly 1.5 hours (fan oven). I imagine that for 10 inches you could just scale up ingredients by 10% and increase cooking time by a wee bit.

Thank you I'll have a look now!

Do I put the batter into 2 seperate pans or 1?

I did it all in one pan.

Going forward I would get Mary Berry's ultimate cake book this is a fabulous bible of all different types of cake baking. I use her all the time she has lovely tables showing you just how much you need for all different shapes and sizes of tin - disappears off to worship at the altar of MB.
