Possible cause
Incorrect oven level
Oven temperature too
Baking time is too short Set a longer baking time
Too much liquid in the
fore. Adapt your usual settings (temper-
ature, cooking times) and shelf levels to
the values in the tables.
• With longer baking times, the oven can
be switched off about 10 minutes be-
fore the end of baking time, to use the
residual heat.
When you use frozen food, the trays
in the oven can twist during baking.
When the trays get cold again, the
distortion will be gone.
How to use the Baking Tables
• We recommend to use the lower tem-
perature the first time.
• If you cannot find the settings for a spe-
cial recipe, look for the one that is al-
most the same.
• Baking time can be extended by 10-15
minutes, if you bake cakes on more
than one level.
• Cakes and pastries at different heights
do not always brown equally at first. If
this occurs, do not change the temper-
ature setting. The differences equalize
during the baking procedure.
Put the cake on a lower oven level
Use a lower setting
Do not set higher temperatures
to decrease baking times
Use less liquid. Look at the mixing
times, specially when you use mix-
ing machines
