Topic: HELP!!!!! My Springform pan is deflating my cakes!!!!

Hi All! What can I do to stop my springform pans from deflating my cakes. The cakes come out only about a inch. What am I doing wrong? I used it to make my red velvet cakes and they came out fine. When I use regular vanilla cake mix they do not bake up. What can I do?

Are you putting enough batter into the pan?

Bunnywoman mentioned yesterday that she lines her springform pan with parchment paper to prevent the pan from harming the cake. Maybe that would help if the problem comes after the baking. I would spray the parchment with a baking spray that has flour in it so that the cake has something to cling to as it rises.

Thanks for the reply! I usually put 1 box of cake mix in a 9 inch springform pan. Do I need to put more? Do you think it has anything to do with air getting in the pan? I'm thinking of just getting a regular 9 inch pan.

A cake pan should be about 1/2 - 2/3 full of batter to bake properly. I've never done a regular cake in a springform pan, but I don't know why it would be different. If anyone else has better information I hope they'll jump into the thread.

I use my springform pans for cake mixes all the time. Sometimes I line with parchment, sometimes I don't and I have had no problem with them rising. I am stumped as to the reason this is happening. They do take longer to bake, so maybe be certain they are baked properly?

What is the reasoning/logic for baking regular cakes in a springform pan?
