    Dear Avril,I saw your Video of making were pouring the dough into cold moulds first.My tip is first place the moulds in the vessel so that it becomes warm and then pour the that it puffs up better.Same procedure further by second raw.Dough poured first will be cold and falls back when opens the lid.Thank you.
