I have made the lemon chiffon cake for the fifth time with excellent results. This time my cake split while cooling upside down and fell out of the pan.
The cake was excellent. high fluffy good crumb. perhaps a little less brown on the side and bottom than previous times. Help I don’t want this to happen again
Good morning. Sorry to learn of your baking disappointment. I can render a suggestion to you.
It is based only on your description of the cake. If it was less brown in various places…it would denote the cake was not done.
I would make certain your oven temp is accurate using a oven therm.
If it is accurate Place your index finger at the side pull the side of the cake gently. If after you let go it springs back & your finger isn’t smudged the cake ready.
I will mention to you as a reminder, when using a bundt or a tube pan it is best not to place it in a sheet pan. Place directly on the oven grate.
You can also perform the tooth pick test as well.
Good luck to you & if you wish you can post your results to us.
Enjoy the rest of the day.
