i dont know what im doing wrong if anyone has idea please!! help
It sounds like you may have overcooked it a little. What size was your pan? What temperature did you bake it and for how long? You might try lowering your temp and/or shortening your baking time. Also, you might want to check your oven's thermostat and make sure it's at the correct temp.
Is it just the outer surface that is brownish? My cakes turn slightly brownish gold on the outer surfaces, but the inside is still white and soft. That brown on the parts that touch the pan is called the Maillard reaction, and is normal, to a degree. If it is too dark then it is probably overbaked.
If it is brown on the inside, then I don't know what happened.
thanks the size is 8 inch and 12 but i cooked @ 350 but for couple minutes like until i put in a knife and comes out clean ....
Try lowering your temperature to 325 for the same length of time. I cook by smell, so I only watch the time closely when I'm trying a new recipe.
