I tried a new Red Velvet cake recipe. It is made with a cake mix and has buttermilk, butter, cocoa, sugar, 3 eggs, and a bottle of food color. The recipe is great, the only thing is when it's in the oven it is all the way to the top of pan. When it comes out it shrinks like crazy! Top, bottom, sides you name it. What causes this? The only thing that I stray from the original recipe is I add a cup of sour cream, an extra tsp of cocoa and I melt 3 squares of Bakers German Chocolate. Like I said it is a great cake but I can't figure out why it shinks.
