Hi, I made your Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake (Kitchen, p308) today and found that the mixture rises so much above my tin that it falls onto the bottom of my oven. This has happened twice before, I am sure I have 1lb loaf tins, what am I doing wrong? Thanks Lorraine
Every time I try to make the Dense Chocolate Loaf Cake receipie from "Domestic Godess" (p166) it explodes over the oven like a volcano! No cake left in the tin, all the batter over the oven floor. What am I doing wrong? Andien

In some cake or cupcake receipes you mention "....to avoid over-mixing..". What will happen to a cake/cupcake when you over-mix (how does it affect the cake/cupcake)?

I have made this recipe from How To Be A Domestic Goddess (p322) on several occasions and always love the outcome. I have, however, never been able to get away with using the 600g of flour that the recipe calls for. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, but I invariably require substantially more flour. Please help. Thanks
