Rectangular sponge cake

Hi, please can you help! I am wanting to make a sponge cake for my daughters birthday. I would like to use my rectangular tin which measures 11" x 8.5" and is 1.5" deep. The only recipe I have is for 2 x 7" round tins.

Sponge

The chart I have for Madeira Cake for a 11 x 7 slab cake says a 4 egg mixture. A 9 x 9 is 5 eggs.
Alternatively the scaling up for a 'normal' sponge 9 inches square is times 1.6. A 10 inch square is times 2.
Take your choice, what is nearest to what you want?

Rectangle sponge ...

Thanks but I'm still unsure of what u mean. The recipe I have is 2 large eggs and 115g of everything else, so would I need to double this to 4 eggs and 230g everything else??

Sponge

To make a bigger sponge you multiply every ingredient by the given factor.

For example if you are doing a 5 egg sponge you would take the weight of 5 eggs in sugar, butter, flour, etc.
