It’s a lemon drizzle cake. When I take it out the tin half the side crust falls off, it’s like it’s not attached. Doesn’t happen to any other Cake so I don’t think it’s the tin and it’s not burnt. Normally I could cover with icing but you don’t ice a lemon drizzle so it’s ruining the appearance.
Have you greased the run properly?
Run = tin
I usually grease the sides with butter then a light dusting of flour
Why do you put four in there? You should only use butter.
*be fine to
Yes, sides greased well. It’s so strange as it isn’t stuck to the tin at all just not stuck to the cake. I find if I dust with flour you can see it on the finished cake and like I said I can’t cover this one with icing
Weird it’s not happening to any other cake. What other cakes do you make?I don’t always use flour after greasing. I read it somewhere.
All cakes! I’m actually an experienced baker but this problem has me baffled. Maybe I’ll have to always line the tin for this cake (faff!)
I use those ready made liners. Very cheap in Poundland or home bargains. No faff!
Yes love those and a bit of ‘Jane Asher bakeware’ but it’s lining the sides that’s a pain in the bum!
