Can someone tell me what is going on? I’ve been baking for years and have used this particular recipe for 2 years. I just made some last night and it didn’t do this.
And broil isn’t on. I’ve never experienced browning like this.
idk -- do you usually bake two racks in the oven like that -- just looks like the bubble on top caught the most heat -- I was never able to get the best bake for cakes in my home oven filling two racks -- I always had one rack in the middle -- but other than oven placement I really don't know -- it does look odd -- how does it usually brown -- does it stay all white or does it get all evenly browned?
Lots of ovens these days alternate between the upper and lower element. From the looks of the picture I would think it could be this?
As I remember I’ve Had that happen often and didn’t think anything about it The finished cake was fine I’d say those look a bit under done — I’d would have left them to bake just a bit longer but I’m not there to smell them I can tell when a cake is done when that heavenly smell is emitted:)
