  1. In what world does this cook in 35 minutes? Mine was in for 50, and when i flipped it over the entire thing fell apart because the batter in the middle was raw. What a waste of time and ingredients.

    • So sorry for the mess, the recipe calls for a 9-inch cake pan or 9-inch round. I just retested it and it came out and was cooked through in the stated amount of time. The recipe is correct. Please check your oven temperature.

    • I am having the same problem. It’s been in for 40ish minutes and it still seems much too raw to take out. I upped the heat to 335 in the meantime.
      Also: make sure that your pan is much higher/taller than mine (a regular round 9″ pan, I think, sorry I don’t know the exact dimensions) because I had to remove half of my apple layer (4 Granny Smiths like the recipe says) to fit the batter in.

      • I made it one more time. I put the oven temperature at 350 for better and faster cake baking, mine was done in 42 minutes, but I wrote to start checking it at 40 minutes and could take up to 55 minutes.

    • You can try it with soy milk or other non-dairy creamer. It will work and be lower in calories and fat but not as rich and moist. Let me know how it turns out.
