I made some cupcakes from a recipe that is known for doming (as I want that look). They did dome very high, but the point of the dome wasn't in the centre, but to one side of the cupcakes.
The batter is fairly runny so it went in the cupcake cakese evenly so I am unsure of what else may caused it?
Could it have been I didn't mix the batter in well enough so the leavening agent (baking powder) was distrubited evently??
Any advice would be great
Did you use a convection oven? Did you not rotate the cupcakes 1/2way through their baking time?
Both of those things would cause that to happen.
Agree with PP, at work I have to rotate the pans after 10 mins or they only dome on one side. We call them elephant seals... Not sure why we call them that.... It's the fan in the convection oven that does it. Hope that helps!
Along with the possiblity of the convection oven and the fan blowing.... is your oven rack level? If it's off just a little bit then the center of your dome can be too.
Thank you all so much for your replied. No I didn't rotate the pan half way through, I didn't even think of it, but that makes sense. And I do used a fan forced oven.
I will try that and see how I go.
