Im having trouble with some recipes that i have not cooking all the way through.
Theres an uncooked layer through the middle of the cake, all in the cake itself.
The Bottom 1/4 is cooked, middle 2/4 is not cooked and the top 1/4 is cooked - see picture.
Recipe is as follows:
- 6oz soft marg
- 8oz SR flour
- 1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 6z caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3 tbsp milk
- 3 tbsp cocoa mixed with 3tbsp of water
Cooked @ 180c for 35 mins in a fan assisted oven in a 12" x 9" tin about 1 cm deep
Theres 3 different variations of the same recipe - all fail. My neighbour makes the same cake and its perfect.
Oven isnt opened whilst cooking, have a friend coming out to check my over but i cant think else it could be.
You are talking about a convection oven I take it? I believe there are some adjustments for the temps and times. Try googling this info to get the info.
Also you can grease a flower nail all over and place it in the middle. It will act as a heating core. I do it too mine all the time, especially because I generally use tall pans. If you have larger cakes use more than 1 nail.
