PLEASE HELP !!!
I baked the Gretchens Sponge cake recipe and doubled the ingredients to get to TWO (10in) round pans by putting 40 ounces of batter in each pan. I was so happy for the first 10 minutes in went into the oven.. BUT , then they started getting this crust in the center and it sunken in a little .. What I'm I doing wrong ? Can anyone guide me on this issue?
Temperature might be too high.
I fear it's not baked all the way through :/
Did you use a flower nail in the centre? And you cake pan looks quite full too...but hard to guess from just looking at it.
It's better to bake them longer at lower temperature to ensure it's baked in the centre and not burned on outside as mentioned by natka81.
Oh...and the cake skin is no problem. You cut it off when you level the cake anyway.
Thanks for the advice. I actually did some thought to the recipe and I cut the sugar amount and it fix the problem. No nail needed for it to cook threw. I'm learning , plus I only fill the pan half way with batter. Thank you all so much !
Yeah! Well done.
