How should I adjust a cake recipe to make it in a glass or pyrex pan rather than metal pan?

I want to bake a cake, but don't have any metal baking pans. And, I bake cakes so infrequently that I don't want to buy any for this one cake I need to bake. Based on a recent episode (read: disaster) with baking brownies in a glass pan rather than metal pans, I'm assuming that I need to adjust the recipe: higher temp and less time, or lower temp and more time. This
just discusses pros/cons.
So, based on the physics of metal vs. glass pans, how should I adjust the temp and/or baking time to bake a cake in a glass pan?
