Ask BFFF: Why Did My Cake Cave in the Middle After it was Baked?

cake-caved

There are a few things to check for when trying to solve this issue. First, your oven temperature may be too low, so be sure to check the accuracy of your oven temperature before baking. Putting an oven thermometer in your oven will ensure that your oven temperature is accurate. Second, be sure to check if your cake is baked throughout. A simple way to check to see if your cake is baked is to take a toothpick and insert it in the middle of your cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the cake is done!

    • Too much baking soda can be the culprit as well.

      • Yes! I have heard that as well. I’ve also heard things about expired baking soda. =)
