The sponge cake does not bloom or bloom poorly

Reason: When mixing the flour mixture into egg whites, you do the wrong technique or mix the dough too hard, causing the air bubbles to burst too much. This causes the dough to not have enough air bubbles to rise.

How to fix: Beat the egg yolks properly, in the process of adding sugar you add slowly, continue beating at medium speed until all the sugar in the recipe is gone. Then continue to increase the speed of the machine to the highest to beat until the tip of the head is slightly turned to one side.

Cakes taken out of the rice cooker have a fishy smell of eggs

Reason: The baking tools are not clean, the egg whites are mixed with impurities or the hand is not beaten evenly, the beating time is not enough.

How to fix: Make sure the whisk is clean, free of butter or fat, the egg whites are separated carefully, the yolk is not sticky, and beat the eggs for enough time.

The cake sticks to the rice cooker

Reason: The cake sticks to the rice cooker because you don’t have good anti-stick, which makes it difficult to remove the cake from the pot because the cake is easily broken and no longer monolithic.

How to fix: Use non-stick wax paper for the pot. You can use butter or cooking oil to brush a layer of non-stick carefully when baking with a rice cooker.

Note: If the non-stick coating is correct and the cake is still difficult to remove, let the cake cool down and then gently remove the cake slowly.

Beat egg whites without peaks

Reason: Do not beat the cake flour mixture thoroughly or mix the dough incorrectly, leading to loose cake dough.

How to fix: Beat the eggs to a fluffy degree, mix the flour gently and firmly, and after mixing, process it immediately, do not leave the dough out for too long.
