I have been baking all morning for my weeks orders....I am trying to bake a 7 inch round coconut cake.I used a coconut DH mix with extender recipe and added shredded coconut.The first cake came out and the whole top broke off.....had to throw it out....redid it again.greased the pans with gobs of shortening and floured again...The second one came out the same..I ran a knife around the edges...flipped the cake from side to side to loosen it etc...The top edges again all broken and wrecked!!!
I have never had this problem before ...ever....Could it be the Fat Dadioas pan...I have had issues with these pans doing the very same thing....Is it because I added shredded cocount to the mix..(Dense)...Could it be that I did an extender and the batter was a bit thinner..
Okay...It been 4 cakes now...2-7 inch and 2-6 inch and I have thrown out all 4
I have never had cakes stick this bad before...I have turned the oven down to 300...325....the top of the cakes are all sticking to the pan...I am ready to cry
I have wasted valuable baking time and 3 mixes....
