  1. This turned out great for me in spite of the fact that I over baked it. I started checking it at 50 minutes and it seemed the toothpick was coming out wet. What I did not realize is that it was hitting chocolate chips. :-( Next time I will be more careful. I suspect 60 minutes would have sufficed. Even with drying it out by over baking, it was still really good and got loads of great comments. Thanks!
