Hi all,

when I take my cakes out of the oven to cool, they sink like rocks in the middle.
even using the bakingsoda.
does this happen to everyone else, or am I doing something wrong?
:?:
I use the recipe posted: 2oz water, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 egg white, pudding packet, usually some cinnamon and either splenda or xylitol.

I do mine the same way, only I do not use baking soda or the sweetener. I do use 2-3 egg whites and put the batter in one ramikin. Makes a nice chunk of "cake" or brownie if chocolate. Mine sink too but they are soo yummilicious.

so what is it that keeps a regular cake from sinking? the fat: or I guess the flour is supporting. Oh well. They still are a fantastic treat. I am going to get the peppermint extract and try and make the chocolate peppermint one, too. That sure sounds great.

Mine sink too, but they turn out better when I use baking powder instead of baking soda. I also have beed using 1 oz. water and 1 oz. da vinci or toroni syrup for extra special flavors.

Sounds like a good idea, i tried your idea with the baking powder and I also liked it better. Then I tried splitting soda and powder, that was good too. It's great sharing ideas. Thanks.

Those pudding cakes seem delicious but as i'm new at this, i was just wondering how come we can use egg whites and a IP packet at the same time, aren't they both supposed to be 1 meal each?

How much baking powder do you use?

And does anyone have ideas for flavoring that might go well with the butterscotch pudding? I have a few butterscotch packets.

I have used almond flavoring with butterscotch..rum is good with the dark chocolate..do not know how it would taste with butterscotch.

2 eggs are a protein meal. Egg whites don't count.

Egg whites do count but as my coach said if you limit them to how often they are okay to have once in a while.
