Brush a rectangular baking pan (20 x 30 cm) (approximately 8 x 12 inches) with the remaining butter and pour in the batter. Bake on the middle rack of preheated oven at 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 2) (approximately 350°F/convection 325°F) until set, about 40 minutes. If the cake is browning too quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil during the last 10 minutes.
