    Learn why it happens and how to prevent it !






    Sunken middle:


    This is the saddest thing that could happen to anyone.The fault could be that the batter was over-beaten, too much yeast, sugar, liquid or baking powder. Or maybe the oven door was open within the first 15 minutes of baking. Even when you closed the oven door to forceful, it can lead to a sunken middle.



    Expired Baking Powder or Baking Soda


    – Leavening products may only account for a small portion of the overall ingredients in a cake, but they’re a key component of your finished product, and your baked goods can be ruined if you’re not careful in checking to assure that the product is still β€œalive and well”!



    Remember that baking powder and soda only stay fresh for about 6 months to a year.

    Not sure if yours is still good? Fortunately, there's a quick test to make sure the leavening agents you use are active.

    For baking powder, place 1 teaspoon baking powder into a cup and add 1/3 cup hot tap water.
    For baking soda, place 1/4 teaspoon baking soda into a cup and add 2 teaspoons vinegar.
    If active bubbling occurs, the products are fine to use. If not, they should be replaced.



    Cracked center:


    One reason could be due to the oven being too hot. So always make sure that the oven is at the recommended temperature. The wrong type of flour could also lead to cracked center, especially when you use a high-gluten flour instead of the recommended softer flour.

    Tough and heavy texture – this is the result of too much liquid, shortening or the batter was under or over-beaten.

    Dry crumb – too much baking powder and too long baking period.

    Too crumbly – the batter is being under-beaten and you put in too much shortening.

    Holes in the cake – the reasons might be due to using too many eggs, too little sugar, poor mixing and an oven which is too hot.

    Cake did not rise as expected – oven not hot enough, too much liquid or fat and if you are using a pan which is too big.

    When measuring honey or sticky food simply spray the cup or spoon with cooking spray.


    Add salt at the very end of the cooking process to reduce the overall salt intake.

    Also, adding salt in the beginning dehydrates the vegetables and reduces its nutritional value.


    Dip the overripe tomatoes in cold water, add some salt and leave it overnight. The tomatoes will be fresh and firm to the touch next day.

    To remove excess oil in fried vegetables, just add a little gram flour over the vegetables and mix. Gram flour absorbs the excess oil and makes the vegetable tastier.

    If your curry is burnt then entire curry smells. If that happens then change the vessel and add some milk as per curry quantity. This will get rid of smell.

    To Increase the Quantity of Curd for β€˜RAITAS’
    Grind freshly grated coconut to a fine paste and mix with the curd.

    Put some fat in the container before putting turmeric powder. It will keep its color same for many days


    While cooking potatoes, cut them into half and add a pinch of turmeric. This will help the potatoes cook faster.
