Whats gone wrong ??

Post  mikeB on 15.02.12 16:47

Our Andrew James 12L arrived today and after pondering on what to try out first we decided on a sponge mixture in a square baking tin as the basis of a tray bake. After preheating the HO we placed the tin on the High rack, put on the Extender ring,set temp at 170c, timer @ 30 mins.
After said time had elapsed cake was looking good-nicely risen and good colour. On removing cake from tin and turning upside down we were disapointed to see that an area of about 3 inches in diameter and for a half the depth of the cake was uncooked--Everything surrounding it was cooked to perfection. What did we do wrong????

Hi Mike,

baking cakes and breads have become a challenge for most halogen oven users.

Here's my answer to a previous post from Liz http://halogenovenrecipes.forumotion.com/t1964-lemon-and-orange-drizzle-cake?highlight=lemon

Other members have baked the same Lemon and orange drizzle cake without any problem.

Hi Mike

I tried this recipe from the Halogen Oven Secret. The first attempt was a disaster, the second was ok but I wouldn't have won any prizes for appearance at the WI. I tried it again today, but in cup cake fashion. Turned out fine. Baking tray on the base, low rack and ER. Pre heated at 165 and baked 12 - 15 mins. I tried on 170 but cakes browned too quickly. This might not be want you wanted but I have found out in the last 3 weeks a success boosts your confidence, also cup cakes can tested quickly. Hope this makes sense and helps. Liz
