4Bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes. If the top starts to get dark, place a piece of aluminum foil over (lightly, not tight) so the middle can fully cook, but the top won't burn. When cooked, invert the pan onto a serving platter or cookie sheet. The caramel will run down the sides, lift off the pan. Enjoy!
