A question....

Hi there...newbie to lj here and to this comm....loving the look of it though!!!

I have a question...I have recently become vegan after being veggie for years and am trying our various recipes for cakes....the only problem I have found with them is that when I take them out the over (say for cupcakes) they have risen to the top of the case or over but after awhile of being out of the oven they have all shrunk down!  They taste perfectly fine but seem to do this weird deflating thing which is a bit annoying!!!

Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong will be gratefully received :) x

As mentioned, it could be a simple issue of the recipe not converting to cupcakes well. Annoyingly, the symptoms you're describing can have a range of causes - it could be overbaking (which I suppose is the most logical given that cupcakes generally bake a bit quicker than a cake) to a too-hot oven, so you might just have to do a bit of experimentation to see if you can pin point the problem.

Good luck!

Mmmmm you may have hit on something there as I was baking them on the fan oven setting....which I guess heats up more...if I could work out which one was the normal oven setting on the dial which has about 20 different icons on it that might help!!!
