Cracked top on Cherry Cake
Asked on 10 Mar 2018 by Curly
Have just made delias cherry cake delicious.my question is the top of the cake was cracked open when cooked.I cooked at 150% in my fan oven bottom shelf. 4/5gas.Should it have been smooth I used delias special tin for this cake so tin was correct.would appreciate your comments on how I could stop this happening again
It does crack a bit in the top.
If it cracks a lot on the top it may be that you may be overcooking it.
You know your oven best, but as a general rule we would suggest 160C if you need to use a fan setting, and I’d probably cover it sooner - 40 minutes perhaps? The shelf position in a fan oven doesn’t usually make any difference.
Thank you Lindsey .going to make cake again will do as you advise.will let you know how it turns out.cynthia
