I have a murphy electric cake oven. it is a classic electric cake oven(not a modern one) In the recipe book it is mentioned to preheat it to 200 degree C for 10 mins. But it is not specified anywhere what should the temperature of the oven be while baking. My cake often gets overcooked/burnt if i keep a high temperature. or remains uncooked if i keep it low. Can anyone specify a temp. for baking a cake or a brownie please.
The baking recipe idiom "preheat oven to X" implies to bake the item at that same temperature, unless the recipe specifies changing it.
200 C (390 F) is a little higher than most baked goods, but not out of the range of possibility. more typical would be 180 C / 350 F.
