I found this recipe in Bon Appetit Every-Night Cooking (2001) and have made it twice, once using light sour cream and then a small nonfat Greek yourt and light sour cream. Added walnuts too. Both times the middle of the cake was not baked. Taste is great. Any suggestions besides muffins for solving undercooked middle? My cake is also lighter than picture.
