I would give this cake a 4 if it wasn't for the burnt bottom! :( I think 375 is a bit too high for this recipe. Followed all directions and I removed it after 40 minutes but the corners were burnt. I was like no biggie, buuut when I removed a peice the bottom was burnt! :( "pleague" did you change degree or leave at the same temp??
