Thank you for your tips, Freshkid. Have you tried this technique with cupcakes for this recipe? I would be more willing to try it again for cupcakes if this was a tried and true method. I have made other butter cakes from The Cake Bible and all have turned out.
I’m baking this recipe again, this time in the suggested cake pan, so hopefully I won’t have the same issue as I did with the cupcakes.
