Wow, this is a delicious cake! I decided to make this into cupcakes, and 35 minutes later, pulled out burnt craters. LOL They sunk in the middle, so to make sure that they were cooked in the middle, I added more time. I did turn down the heat, but by that time it was too late. They taste delicious, but I am not sure if I can use them. Next time, I would cook them at 275-300 degrees, and hopefully that would give them enough time to cook through. But thank you, Mrs. Khaylis, for this recipe.
