Hello and....

Hi Everybody,
Was looking for a place like this as I'm teaching myself to cook...on a budget. :)

Last weekend I made a cake and I actually have a question...

I made two layers and placed one on the bottom shelf of the oven (gas) and one on the top. The one on the bottom had bubbles in it when I took it out...is there a reason for this?

Also any suggestions for making a more moist chocolate cake from scratch would be great.

Welcome, one thing you can do to get rid of
bubbles/air holes is to fill the pan and then
bang it on the counter before you put it in the
oven. I know it sounds crazy but it gets the
air bubbles out. One quick drop/bang should do it.
