It seems that some who have tried my cake have had success and others have had trouble with it. All I can say is make sure you are using fresh ingredients and the right size baking dish or pan and good luck to you all. And thank you for your comments.

I don't know what I did wrong, but the batter was too thin and took at least 45 minutes to bake. Then it was crumbly. Help.

I had the same issue with the cake not cooking in the middle. I followed other reviewers advice and put foil on the edges and turned the temp down 20 degrees. That helped. :)
