Hello mam,
I have two questions regarding baking:
1.if i prepare a batter for cake and my oven does not have the capacity of two tins can i keep the batter for about 40 mins and then bake the second cake.
2.Can i use margarine or low fat spreads which are less salty in baking cakes, tarts etc..

1. Not the ideal thing to do, but most of us have to do it sometimes. I do it too, not for too long though. Up to an hour is fine.
2. Yes you can.

Just bake it a little longer. Sometimes ovens differ so you have to adjust the time and temperature.

Hello mam,
I would want to know if you are doubling the quantity of ingredients in a recipe given for baking cakes for example instead of 1 cup of maida you are using 2 cups should we double the baking time also.

Not the baking time. In microwaving the timing has to be increased, according to instructions in the manual.
