Holes in cakes

If you are finding that your cakes have holes in them, it is very likely due to not distributing the baking powder or baking soda evenly. Sift your dry ingredients to avoid this, or if you do not have a sifter, be sure to beat with a beater instead of stirring (if your recipe will allow this much mixing – if not, be sure to sift them with a sifter). Small lumps of a rising ingredient in your batter will cause the holes, as this is where it is putting the “push” in the rising process.
