So I finally purchased my kitchenaid mixer and was so excited but every cake that I've made has sunk in the middle and clung to the sides. icon_sad.gif This is my tried and true recipe which I used successfully for years with my Sunbeam Heritage Series mixer but I can't figure out this problem.

I have checked the date on the ingredients. I have decreased the mixing time. I have even tried to adjust the baking powder ratio but go figure. Maybe my eggs aren't left out at room temp enough? I have noticed that the egg seem not to mix well and is often at the bottom of the bowl so I stir the mixture in. My cake come out with bubbles on top, sunken in and overflowing on a side or two.

Does this sound familiar??? Please help. Box recipes come out fine icon_cry.gif

Maybe the mixer is mixing it too fast? The motor is stronger than a hand mixer motor, so 1 on the hand mixer and 1 on the stand mixer may not be the same speeds.

Thank You. I've found I need to mix for an even shorter period of time.
