Troubleshooting for Your Strawberry Cake Recipe
Finding a great strawberry cake recipe can be tough.
There are just so many things that go into such a recipe, and you may not always get what you’ve been expecting.
If you’re having trouble with a recipe for strawberry cake, here are some tips and tricks to solve problems you might have.
If your cake is too dense, check the flour amounts and types that are used in the strawberry cake recipe.
If the recipe, for example, says to use cake flour, you should use that type of flour.
If the flour is supposed to be sifted, then you have to sift the flour first, and then measure out the amounts it calls for.
It’s very important that you do this right because too much flour can certainly make the cake too dense.
Everyone wants a strawberry cake that’s flat across the top and that is beautiful for icing.
If your cake falls in the middle, then it might be problems with heat or under cooking. Never, ever open your oven until near the end of the cooking time.
You need the cake’s structure to be set before you open your oven at all. Also, make sure that your strawberry cake is totally done in the middle before removing it, or your cake is likely to fall in the middle.
If the crust of your cake is too sticky, you may need to cut back a bit on the sugar in the recipe next time.
This is something you especially have to remember with recipes that deal with real fruit. The fruit has natural sugars that will make things sweeter and add sugar to the cake overall.
If your cake has too much sugar – whether processed or natural – in it, then the edges and crust might get sticky.
