Cake Wont' Rise Mystery...

Dommy | Oct 13, 2006 09:02 PM

A poster on my fashion board has been fighting this mystery for years... perhaps the hounds have some answers... Here's her post...


Old family recipe. Works in all the family ovens BUT mine. All ovens are electric BUT mine. Used tube pan in moms oven; it works. Used tube pan in my oven; middle of cake never cooked. It was a ring of cooked cake around batter. Made same cake in seperate cake pans; same thing happend. Here are ingredients:

cake mix
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup fresh OJ
orange zest (3 tabl)
4 eggs

What is wrong? This cake is made all over the US and Europe and everyone can do it EXCEPT ME!!!!! Is it the gas oven?


My first thought is all that oil and the Eggs... but wonder if anyone else some idea...
