Baking Help Please!

I love, absolutely LOVE to bake; however, I am experiencing an issue and I am hoping that you all can help me. 


DH and I have a stove that uses propane to cook and if any of you have one, can you tell me if you experience undercooking of your baked goods.  I am finding that I have to add 1 or 2 minutes to the time stated on any of my recipes just for baking. 


GRRRR

Sorry Becca, I'm no help in that! I hope someone else knows the answer.

Thanks Olivia!  I hope so too because last night I made brownies and it didn't look like they were done.  DH is going to let me know how they taste.  :-)

Becca, it sounds like you need to check your oven temperature. A lot of ovens run hotter or cooler than they're supposed to. You can pick up an oven thermometer and check it yourself. They range anywhere from less than $10 on up. If the oven's temperature is off, you can have the oven repaired (expensive), or you can just manually adjust the temperature you use for your recipes. If you're trying to bake at 350 and the thermometer is reading 325 when the dial says 350, try turning it up to 375 and see if it that gets you to 350 on the thermometer. It's trial and error, but it's a much cheaper way of dealing with the problem.

Hmmm, I didn't think about that since it was a brand new oven.  I will definitely get one to check.  That would make sense though I think.  Cooking with propane is fine, but baking is a pain in the butt.  I also am wondering if it has to do with the higher altitude we are at from where we used to live. 


Thanks Laura!!!

Altitude definitely makes a difference.
