  2. I followed this recipe, and the cake has been in the oven for at least an hour so far, still totally liquid in center! I followed the directions, did not sub ingredients. Oven was checked, it is the temp the oven says it is. ????

  3. I wrote the above comment, re: cake not cooking. The cake took almost twice the time cooking it calls for. The top and sides got very dark, but not burnt. The cake still did work, was still moist, and very tender. It was enjoyed by many. Shrug?
