If your cake hasn’t even begun to cook, pop it back in the oven. Make sure the oven is on and on the correct temperature too. If your cake is not cooking in the middle, then put it back into the oven and cover tightly in tin foil. The tin foil will trap the heat and help to cook the inside of your cake.
Why are my cupcakes raw in the middle?
Oven too hot or too cold
It might just surprise you to know your oven may not be at the temperature you think it is. This can lead to a whole host of issues for your cupcakes, including leaving them raw in the middle or burning their edges and drying them out.
Why does my cake not bake in the center?

How do you fix undercooked cupcakes?
So how do you fix undercooked cake? If the cake is undercooked overall, put it back in the oven for 10-15 minutes. If the middle part is still wet, cover the cake with foil and bake for up to 15 minutes. If the bottom is moist, turn off the upper heat or cover with foil, and cook for a few minutes.

How do you tell if cupcakes are undercooked?
Stick a toothpick into a cupcake. If it comes out dry, the cupcake is done. If it is still wet, return the cupcake tin to the oven for another five minutes and test again. The second way to tell is simply to touch a cupcake and see if it springs back.
Why are my cupcakes too soft?
