I am using the 1-2-3-4 cake recipe from the Swan’s Cake Flour box. It advises to pour batter into three 9-inch pans; however, it doesn’t seem like enough batter for all three pans. Is it okay if I filled my pans less than 1/2 full?

It is okay if the batter does not fill a baking pan 1/2 to 2/3 full, that will just make a thinner layer of cake. Be sure to follow instructions for baking time on the recipe, as that will probably be less than you are used to with a recipe that fills the pan more.
