Do not over cook this cake, check it about 20 to 25 minutes to see if cake is done. this is a very most cake. If for some reason you have a dome on your cake .you can take a pan that fit inside the cake pan but the same size as the cake and push it down level , it will not hurt the cake . Do this while the cake is hot.
