Have any ideas what I did wrong?? I followed the recipe exactly...but I cut it in half...

Could've I had too much batter in the pans? They rose about 1/2-1" above the pan, and then PLLOOOOOOP!!!! LOL... icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif I do not want this to happen when I really need it for an order!!

I dont know but would love to know. I just baked a pound cake and it rose and then fell horribly in the center and was almost flat. I dont understand. I hope someone answers you so we both can find out. icon_cry.gif

Ok Could it be one of those recipes that dont turn out if you 1/2 the recipe ? there are recipes that do that.
Are you positive it was done ? maybe it wasent fully cooked in the midde and the soft area sank in ? maybe add a flower nail in the middle to make sure is fully cooked
Just some thoughts,hope someone can answer that has overcome this!

I have no idea if you can't halve the recipe. I never knew you couldn't do that!! LOL

I'm sure it was done. It wasn't gooey in the middle or anything.

I thought I wouldn't need a flower nail since it was only a 4" cake, but maybe that would be a good idea...I could try that!!

Thank you Fiddlesticks! Any other ideas? Anyone??
