Here’s the lowdown on the top three reasons your cake might be channeling its inner limbo.
Oven Temperature Tango:
- Issue: So, your oven is throwing a bit of a party with uneven temperatures, and your cake got an invite to the sinking spot.
- Solution: Get cozy with an oven thermometer – it’s like the GPS for your baking adventure. Preheat like a pro, and let the temperature dance begin!
- Issue: Who knew mixing could be such a drama queen? Too much of it and your cake might decide to sit this one out in the center.
- Solution: Mix, but keep it cool! Imagine you’re folding in a cozy blanket – gentle and easy. Your batter will appreciate the chill vibes.
- Issue: Your cake wants a little more time in the oven but didn’t send you the memo. Result? A gooey, sunken heart.
- Solution: Stick a toothpick in the center – it’s like giving your cake a little prod. If it comes out with a few moist crumbs, you’re golden!
