Cumbley Cake

Hi,

I recently made the chocolate cake which tasted amazing.

However I founf it to be very crumbly when cuttiong it with bits breaking off at the sides.

Am i doing something wrong as I ahve made other chocolate cakes before which feel a lot firmer.

Hi Kookieskakery

Most common reasons why cake comes out crumbly are over baking, oven temperature too high and sometimes under mixing. This recipe mustn’t be over mixed but it does need to be well combines without beating it. Have a look at this blog http://www.cakeflix.com/blog/baking-the-perfect-cake-why-things-go-wrong, the information there may be of help. Did you remember to use large eggs? lack of moisture can also make cake crumbly. Hope this helps you out.
