So I was baking a 10" round in a 3" high pan. Made it like I always do - had about 6 cups of batter in, had the oven set a little below 350 and it seemed to be taking FOREVER to bake but it just wouldn't set in the middle. It was in for probably close to an hour. Lost track of how many times I recent the timer. It started to crack in the oven while baking. Finally it was set, pulled it out, cooled for 10 min and as soon as I flipped, it fell completely apart. Help! What caused this?
Do you have an oven therm.? Check your oven temp, might be off.
1. temp might be off. 2. opened oven door too much which will throw the temp off. that size pan baked at say 325 will take about 80 min to bake.
Is your heating element working correctly? Mine went kablooey a week ago. No wonder my cake took forever to bake!
Did you use a heating core/upside down flower nail? If not I highly recommend it & bake even strips too. I also bake at 325. Makes the biggest difference
