Hi John, we haven't tested doubling this recipe in the Test Kitchens, but would encourage you to try at home! We think trying it in a 13x9-inch pan is a great idea. Let us know how it turns out for you!

I've made this a few times! It's awesome. Has anyone tried to double the recripe and make it in a 9x13? I'm going to make it for a crowd.

Fun and strait forward to put together. Only problem with the recipe is that there wasn't enough coconut mixture to completely cover my 9 inch pie pan, so I had to mix up about half a cup more.
