When baking using a dark pan, should you...?

Bake for less time? Bake for more time? Turn down the heat a tad and bake a little longer?

When I use my dark pan the outside burns quickly, but I was reading a box of cake mix that said to bake it for a longer time when using a dark pan. So now I'm confused.

    Start at 25 degrees less and check for doneness 5-10 minutes earlier. I find that every pan is different, so I have to figure out what is best time and temperature for each pan. It's a pain!
