Okay, I have been baking for 35 years, but I admit, it is not my strong point. I made this, carefully following the directions. The batter seemed loose, filled the bundt pan, I baked it, tested it with a piece of spaghetti, and it came not out clean, but with crumbs on it. I took it out, placed it on a rack and let it rest in the pan for 15 minutes as advised. When I came back, it had shrunk to half its size! I removed it from the pan, and although it looked cute, it was tiny. When I cut it, it was squishy in the middle. It tasted good, just strange texture. <br/>So, did anyone else have this experiance?
