  • Lower the temperature to 225ºF.
  • and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the center no longer looks wet or shiny.
  • (Do NOT do the"knife test"- it only made my cake crack ALL over) Remove the cake from the oven and run a knife around the inside edge of the pan.
  • Turn the oven off; return the cake to the oven for an additional 30 minutes.
  • (I didn't notice this step, but the cake turned out all right, but I'll be sure to remember this NEXT time!:) Chill, uncovered, overnight.
