What is the baking time for a half-sheet cake?

I am using a recipe for a two-layer cake, but I want to make it a half-sheet.

Reduce your baking time by half, and then look at the cake in the oven. Allow five-minute increments until you see the cake begin to brown around the edges. Test for doneness by touching the center lightly; if it springs back without an indent the cake is done.

I would adjust the cooking time to 20 minutes at 350F. Keep an eye on it. You might want to rotate the pan a half turn halfway through.

Usually about 50-55 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit, however it can vary depending on your oven.You may also want to use a heating core (a metal flower nail placed upside down in the pan prior to filling with batter works too) to help the center of the cake bake evenly.

A half sheet cake will take more baking time than a two layer cake because it will take more time to ccok in the middle. It will bake in about 35-45 minutes.
