Oven Malady

When it's time to bake cupcakes or cakes, I will never use my fan assisted oven again.

An old pic taken while I was baking some cinnamon rolls - my fan assisted oven is the one lighted up, on the right side of the cooker.

Although it's supposed to be better - faster, better heat distribution etc. etc., I think the one I have in my kitchen has some sort of fan malfunction - the 'wind' generated from the fan is too strong that it actually blows my cake sideways!!


The one on the left was baked in my normal oven, the one on the right, using the fan assisted one.

Look at the right side of the bundt - you can see that it's clearly 'blown' by the over-working (or over-worked?) fan!


Now I can only use the fan assisted one to bake crumbles/ pies/ cookies/poultry i.e. for baking/roasting that don't 'rise'. Even then, it would be better for me to turn my baking around halfway through so that it bakes more evenly.


Thank God I have a second oven (see pic above: bottom left of my cooker) which is the normal (non-fan assisted) one that bakes fine.

But about that fan assisted one - anyone with the same problem? Or maybe someone can point out to me that I did something wrong?
