Tips and advice:
- Droops and dips in cakes can be caused by adding too much baking powder, syrup or treacle.
- Having your oven set too high or opening the oven door too early can also produce a sunken cake. It can also be caused by over-mixing, particularly when using a food mixer.
- Test your cake is cooked by lightly pressing the top – if it’s firm and springy, it’s ready; if soft, it needs a little longer in the oven. Use a metal skewer for larger cakes; the skewer should come out clean with no uncooked mixture sticking to it.
