I guess the weather does affect baking...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So it's been raining all day here. I've never had the weather really affect the way my cakes bake but today, everything I've baked did not rise as usual. 2 12inch marble cakes, 24 cupcakes and a loaf of pumpkin bread. Thank goodness everything is baked thru but just not as tall as usual. Blame it on the rain...

I always have found the science of baking fascinating, including how humidity affects the outcome of confections.

I have a lot more difficulty when making candy in those conditions, but have also noticed that my cakes don't rise as well either.

The weather and the altitude make a huge difference!!

I moved from Colorado to Washington State and I can not believe the difference moisture makes...My cakes always rise and come out very nice and I use the same recipe...

I tried to bake my daughter a birthday cake here last month and it was damp outside and my cake totally fell in the middle then the next try the cake fell apart when I took it out of the pan! so I had to go with cup cakes that were difficult as well took a couple batches to adjust..

But the Month before It was warm and dry here and I made a beautiful large Anniversary cake and it turned out perfect...I need to post a pic.

Moving from dry to damp hugely makes a difference! Weather is a bigger issue in baking than I ever realized... I totally understand...Bless your heart icon_smile.gif
