Topic: Not fully cooked cake!!! Help ASAP!!
sarah54 09/19/2009 1:25 PM
I am making a cake for tonight and its not 100% cooked right in the middle, is there anything I can do about that now that its out of the oven cooling?? Is it okay to eat, its not really bad, just a little undercooked right in the middle.

Thanks! Its my first time doing a sheet cake.

sarah -0 I know you posted this a couple of hours ago, but I wouldn't risk the cake being undercooked

If I ever have had a cake that is undercooked, I do one of 2 things; -
I put the cake back in the oven for a few more minutes
If I already turned my oven off, I put the cake back into it, close the door & left the cake in the oven - seemed to finish cooking the small center part that was undercooked

Thanks Marie, I put it back in the oven and it worked!

Glad it worked out for you.

Tip for next time: try placing a couple inverted, prepared, metal flower nails even spaced in the pan and then pour in your batter. They act as a heating core and will conduct the heat in the center of those really large sheet cake pans.

i made 2 cakes this week and froze them, i took one of them out, and they seamed sticky, no sure they were done but knife came out clean when i checked it, could it have been they might not have been as cooled off as i thought i did put pudding in and extra large eggs but i've add an extra egg before when they were large thanks

bunny - you forgot to mention that the flower nails need to be the metal ones !! - Wilton now makes plastic ones as well
