How to keep a cake from cracking?

xnyorkr | Apr 26, 2007 05:46 PM

I baked a cake in a tube pan tonight. The middle rose much more than the sides, and the cake had major cracks in the top. I imagine this has something to do with the batter sticking to the sides, but I'm not sure. The pan was greased and floured.

Any idea why cakes crack, and how to stop it? Thanks!
