Last few times I have made the WASC recipe... the finished cake has an awful lot of air bubble/ pockets... I have not changed the recipe, or anything...

It's not the end of the world... just annoys me icon_wink.gif

Ideas as to why... and how can i fix/prevent that from happening?

I usually bang the cake pan on the counter a few times to get the air bubbles out.

The only thing I can think of is to slow your mixer speed down. That usually keeps bubbles out of the batter.

I make sure not to over-mix my batter and I give each pan about 20 drops on the counter from about 9-12" up before I put them in the oven. That usually takes care of it.

Every time I banged a pan on the counter, I got a lot more bubbles instead of less. I quit banging them and life is better. icon_smile.gif

Cheatize, you mean you got more bubbles in the finished product or more bubbles appearing on the surface of the cake before you put it in the oven? I don't know why I'm asking you this - you're one of the people I pay most attention to when they post, but I just have to know.
