I have been baking for many many years and cannot figure out what happened to my cakes today. I use a 8 x 3 pan that holds one cake mix. The first cake I made was the Hershey's recipe. I have made this dozens of times and it always turns out. Today I wanted to add some cherry flavor so instead of 1 cup of milk I used 1/2 c. cherry juice and 1/2 cup milk. The cake overflowed all over in my oven, what a mess. Like I said I have made this recipe many times and this has NEVER happened. For the second cake, I used a white cake mix, it called for 1 cup water, used 1/2 cup cherry juice and 1/2 water, and this one sunk in the middle. Could this have been caused by the cherry juice? I am a very good baker and wanted some cherry flavored things for Valentines day but obviously this is not going to happen. Can anyone shet some light onto why this happened?
