2.) When your cake get stuck to the pan – This occurs when you forget to grease your cake pan before pouring the batter.
3) When your cake is too moist and a kind of sticky – This may occur as a result of inadequate leavening agent or when it is expired and you used it for baking.
4) Cake sinking in the middle- This occurs when your cake is undercooked and raw in the middle,this could be as a result of your batter being over mixed and the gluten structure is strengthened too much,which allow more air to enter into it,thereby leaving the cake to rise and then fall again.
