  • Mine fell when taken out even though toothpick was clear. - 3/16/09

    How weird, I haven't had mine fall on me yet. I'm sorry it happened to you! The top things I could think of is if the batter was either over-mixed or your oven temp is off. I wish I could give you some better advise - with baking there are too many small factors that could cause falling. Sorry!
