First off, this is not a cake. It is a cross between a souffle and a pudding, like bread pudding. Mine had a beautiful color to it, and the inside was the consistency of a souffle. The only change I made was to use coriander instead of cinnamon (personal preference). I did not use the topping because I thought it was excellent as it was, not too sweet and very fragrant, and the topping would have covered the fairly mild taste of the batter cake. I loved the way it worked with the blender. Thank you for sharing, Derf.
What am I missing here? This puffed up so nicely in the oven and then when it cooled it fell flat and is doughy.
