Thought I would re-bring this topic up as im having a few issues.
Im trying to make fairycakes, yet every attempt I make, they always end up sinking in the middle. Back in the UK, I used to make them perfect with SR flour, however since i've been here they turn out terrible!
They taste fine but the are just flat.
I use plain flour and baking powder, and before I was using the correct amounts that it says on the back of the baking power packet, and they turned out flat, so because it was only cheap denner stuff i thought maybe i should use more. However even using more, they end up sinking in the middle!
I always make sure I dont open up the oven in the middle of cooking as i know that sinks them, i have a fan assisted oven so the temperature is at 180 so its not too cool or too hot. So confused!!
Is it possible to use too much baking power in cakes? So they end up rising too much and then collapse? I've always been good at baking but this is really starting to irritate me! I just want fluffy fairy cakes like i used to make!
