The first thing that comes to my mind is to get an oven thermometer, and check the temperature of your oven to be sure it is baking properly. Janice
sounds to me like the cake just isn't done cooking. So first check the oven temp.
Next would be to attack your recipe.
I agree with both posters--you can get an oven thermometer for about $5--a VERY worthwhile investment. That way you'll know if your oven is off and if so, by how much.
