an Oven Thermometer!

Have you ever gotten excited about a cake recipe? You get all the ingredients together, you follow it to the letter, you pop the filled cake pans into the oven and the smell of deliciousness fills the entire house! 

You can hardly wait to tuck in!  Initially when you open the oven door, and remove the cake, all looks well until suddenly….the cake completely sinks in the middle!

What in the world was that all about? Not to be defeated, you decide to try again, after all, there are some ingredients left over and it would be a shame to waste them right?

You repeat the process and exactly…the same…happens again! Why??? You turn to your good old mate Mr G on the internet, who shares with you something that you had not even considered before! The explanation to your dilemma! You should be using an oven thermometer!
