So I just made my peach raspberry cake.
I've made this cake many times. I don't know where my brain was today when I was making it. I doubled the recipe and I noticed two things when I started pouring them in the pans. First, that there wasn't much batter and second, that it seemed drier and thicker than usual. I realized I forgot to put in a whole cup of flour! After I scooped the batter back into the bowl and added the flour then poured it back in the pan, I rechecked the ingredients to find I forgot the baking powder. Back in the bowl. Then I rechecked the recipe after I had added the powder to realize I misread the 1/4 tsp baking soda (I thought it said 1 1/4 tsp). Now there is 2 tsp too many of baking powder. It still looks dry when I put it in the pans. It dawns on me that I forgot the yogurt! Yikes! Back onto the bowl. Finally all the ingredients are in (and way too much baking soda).
I put it in the oven and wait 15 minutes until the top of the cake is somewhat set. The fruit gets put on top where it is supposed to stay. I think because of the added soda, there was too much air in the batter. My peaches sunk but the crushed raspberries were able to stay on top.
What a space case I am! I'm not usually that airheaded! I don't know what happened to me today.
Cakes are in the oven now. We have yet to see how they taste.
