I followed the instructions and it came out nice and fluffy but the instructions didn't say not to move it around in the buttered pan, so I leaned the pan to cover all the corners evenly...this is not a great idea. You can tell what parts had to slide. It flattens it back out some, making the finished product a little to hard. It had a great flavor and would have had a great texture if I had known not to move the pan. Over all it is probably a five star recipe but don't move it after you pour it until it is cold. I will make it again...with the noted change not to move the pan. :)
