Thanks for the quick reply and analysis. I am going to try this baby again soon, but my kitchen is about to be demolished so it won't be until end of September at the earliest. I will keep in mind your recommendation when I do it. I am not sure how to do 15%...but I think if I just eyeball it that will work well. Much appreciated.
I would eyeball it. Just figure that 25% is a quarter of a tsp, so 15% of a tsp would be on the shy side of a 1/8 tsp. reduction. Ball park. Not the frank. :D

cHOCOLATE POUND CAKE

alix,

Sounds, as if you beat , your cake too long. When the air gets into the layers, they will collapse. Also pan has to be the right size in order to accomidate the recipe........ Hope this helps.... :P



WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, SONGBIRD

:D Check your oven temp with an oven thermometer.Your oven might be down a few degrees ,too low to get the poundcake a chance to set up fast enough.

Thank you for your tips...my oven is at the right temp and I think I did beat it too long. As I recall there was a disagreement between my kids while I was making this...and I left the machine on...LOL!
