    The recipe is one that I submited, it's called Rhubarb Pudding Dessert.

    Yes, you'd want to double the entire recipe, if it's going to fit into a 13 X 9.  You'll also probably have to bake it a little longer.  Just keep an eye on it once it reaches the time recommended in the recipe--it probably won't take twice as long to cook, but will take maybe an extra 20-40 minutes or so, depending upon the recipe.

    Callie is right.  An 8x8 pan is 64 square inches and a 9x13 is 128 square inches. I figure 64x2=124 so I know that it will be a good fit when I double the recipe.  You can figure the area of any pan and compare it to another to see if it will be 1 1/2 or double a recipe.  No fun when a pan overflows!

    Could you please post your rhubarb recipe, I would love to try the 8X8 version as I don't have very much rhubarb.  Thanks
