Can't fix sad streaks! - Page 2

Entirely possible. 

 

The last site I gave you  also makes the observation that with the larger pans you may have to adjust your amount of baking powder downward.  I don't pretend to understand the science, but it has something to do with surface tensions and collapse points etc.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

i've heard that before and i'm content to not be smart enough to figure it out--all i can say is that i never had a problem just straight up multiplying recipes and i have pastry chef peeps and baker friends who have done the same all their careers

I guess it's going to depend on the recipe, and on how much the baker is willing to invest in time and product to get a good result.  That particular recipe seems to suffer issues at larger sizes as it comes up again and again on the professional sites as a failure at larger sizes, so it might need tweaking for baking powder at larger sizes.

Update. Okay, so I tried again today. Oven has been checked, new baking powder and Softasilk flour were used. This time I got a good result from the one baked in the oven and not the one baked in the convection oven. The only thing I did differently is I put the pan that I poured first into the convection oven and the pan I poured last into the gas oven. So I guess it must be my mixer. I always get the worst results with the pan that is poured first. Should I have mixed it longer? Two weeks ago I got slightly better results when I mixed it a little longer than I did today. This is a very large volume recipe, maybe my 5 qt mixer just can't handle it? I do think it runs a lot faster than it should, maybe I should return it, I bought it last fall. Any suggestions are much appreciated, I'm totally discouraged now.

One more thought. I have a brand new kitchenaid mixer that I believe runs too fast. The stir speed runs more like at speed 6. I mixed it for the recommended time in the recipe. If it is running too fast, can over mixing be causing the problem?
