This is long, but I really have no idea what I did incorrectly. ** If this is the in-correct thread, please let me know and I will repost.**So, Here goes:
It is a standard coffee cake recipe found in the B, H & G cookbook. It requires sifting the flour, adding baking powder, soured milk, etc. All of that went fine. Now, the recipe doesn’t call for fruit, but a neighbor made this adding about 2 cups of stewed fruit. It was terrific.
However, when I tried , it has the consistency more like Yorkshire pudding or pumpkin pie, rather than a coffee cake. It did not rise at all. Also, instead of putting it in to (2) 8x8 pans, as it calls for, I put it in to one 13 x 7”. I have no idea what I should have done to make it work. More flour, to make up for the liquid from the stewed fruit? * Can baking powder become old*? Did I put too much fruit in? I am at a loss. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks for reading this
