Ok. I've made 6 cakes today (and one previously) using this recipe, and all of the cakes have sunk in the middle. I let my oven preheat for 30 min, I havent opened my oven door before the minimum baking time, etc. I am wondering if it is the recipe. Here it is:
1 box mix
1 box pudding
1 c sour cream
1/2 c water
1 tbs flavoring
1 c sugar
Is it the sugar? Helpful hints would be appreciated, as I am still a beginner baker. I am doing a stacked cake for this weekend and was needing a dense cake, and this recipe tastes good. But it always sinks? This isnt a cake threatening emergency, I just would like to know what I need to change in the future. TIA =)
That looks pretty similar to the WASC recipe that is so popular around here (thank you Kakeladi! ) except that it doesn't look like enough water, and the WASC recipe has flour added to it too. It's in the recipe section here, give it a try sometime.
Do you use a flower nail in the middle of your cake while you're baking? I've found that it helps a lot when baking anything more dense than a cake mix cake.
Thanks! =) I will definitely try that recipe next time. Yep I used the flower nail, thanks to all the ccer's who recommended that one!
that is the recipe I use exactlly but it's missing 1 c. of flour!!
I am sure the flour would help. lol thanks =)
