I am thinking my oven is too hot…
I have a thermometer that I use in the oven to check my temperature and always have to turn up the heat higher than what the reading on the digital is. But, my cakes seem to take a bit longer to cook in the middle than the higher end of the stated time and sometimes the cake starts to just pull away from the sides even before I can pull it out (as the middle is barely cooked). Also, the cakes (esp. chocolate) seem a little dry. I use Rose’s cake strips. Is the thermometer just off and I should buy a new one? I am baking tonight, would it be OK to just go by the digital temp. even if it is 25 degrees cooler?
Thanks for your help,
