Hmmmmm....not sure about this one. I thought it would be fabulous, and maybe it was my fault that it wasn't. I may have baked it too long (the full 60 min.) because I was waiting for it to bubble, but it never did! As a result it was on the (very) dry side, and the bottom was way too brown. Next time I will try it in a glass pan instead of a non see through one, so I can watch the bottom.
