I believe the temperature of the oven should be 350 degrees. And perhaps that is why Aunty Doty's came out too wet.

Okey Doke Bogey's Mum, you have to forgive my ignorance here - this turnes out like a kind of pudding if anything.. is this right? It was quite a 'wet' dish, and not having any clue of what 'pone' is I found it all rather intriguing. It is yummy, mine was quite boozy even - used brandy instead of bourbon. Thanks for a really interesting dish : )
