My daughter's 18th. birthday today- made a strawberry cake + extender @ 325 for 50 minutes and it sunk! WHY?
strawberry cake ain't easy
what kinda recipe/mix went with the extender?
how big was it?
I used a Duncan Heinz cake mix and the extender: pudding-1 C sour cream-1/3C melted butter-1/2 c.milk-4 eggs-vanilla.
and so sorry that happened
sometimes you can cut out the bad part and section in cake parts you cut off elsewhere
sandwiched in with icing
if there's no time/ingredients to make more
hmm, mighta been the pudding that sunk it--i don't know
i can add sour cream and the rest but the pudding additions work best in a bundt pan for me
Frustrating when you do everything else right... I made it in a 10 inch round so I could torte 3 times but with the dip in the middle it'll have to be 2 layers...
even if the pudding is instant?
for me yes i use instant--i can't hardly bake with pudding except in the pans with the nice big holes
i guess lots of people on here do use pudding successfully in regular cake pans--i ain't one of 'em
i just don't know how to avoid the death valley
hopefully someone will chime in soon for you
plus you mighta over filled the pan--maybe
6 cups of batter for a 10"
the amount of batter in those real thick cakes can be tricky
