Hi, how do I modify the recipe if I'm using a 8 inch round pan? Thanks :)

Hi, should I extend the baking time if I'm using a 8 inch round baking pan?

I think you may adjust the recipe by reducing 2 eggs as 8 inch round tin equivalent to 7inch sq tin. If don't reduce, you can try and have to extend baking time maybe by 10 mins. Happy baking!
