I asked my DH to take my cake out of the oven while I ran an errand. He said he left it in longer than the time I told him but I just went to get it out of the pan and the middle is still raw icon_cry.gif

If it's been out of the oven for 1-2 hours, I don't think it will work. Here's a bump...

If it is just for you, go for it, but if it is for a special occasion or someone else ,I wouldnt chance it. I just dont think the results are going to be very good.

Hi everyone,

Well I did try to re-bake and the mushy part in the middle seemed to firm up. The only problem was I had already cut the top mound of the cake
off so that part started to crack. When I inserted a toothpick it looked fine and when I torted the cake the middle looked OK. The only problem is it was for Thanksgiving and I wanted to freeze it and de-frost the night before to decorate. That meaning I couldn't cut it last night to be sure it was OK. It is only my immediate family on Turkey day so I am going to serve it and see what happens icon_confused.gif

That's never worked for me. I found that the center would firm up but then the rest was over cooked. Hasseling with something like that isn't worth the frustration for me because I know I'm going to end up throwing it out and starting again. Sorry that happened to you. If you're going to frost it will it even be evident that there was any problem? AND if you don't say anything about having had a problem no one will know, right? Okay Girl, just don't tell on yourself!! And have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hun to avoid your mother and her input on turkey day, I would take the time to REMAKE the cake tonight. Since your plan is to freeze and defrost wednesday night, you could make it tonight and freeze it and have it be perfect. That way there is NO chance she might have something negative to say about it. I know how bad it hurts me when people knitpick at my baking and the lack of talent they seem to think I have.... so I'd take the easy way out of this one and just remake the cake lol
