I didn't expect the cake to rise since it doesn't have any leaveners, just curious if this is to be expected
Stephanie is the Head Recipe Tester of Food52.
Cakes without leaveners may rise from air that is mixed and trapped in the batter when making the cake.

Are there any eggs or egg whites in the cake? This will make it rise slightly and, depending on the structure of the cake and other conditions, may or may not fall as it cools.
