I used a 10 cup Pyrex bowl to bake a half sphere, because it is a deep bowl, the middle of the cake took ages to cook while the sides of it where getting dryer and crunchier.

Any suggestions on how to even cook a in a deep pyrex bowl?

I had the same problem but with a pampered chef mixing bowl~my theory is they are both glass. So I turned my oven down to 300 and baked it longer~had to keep an eye on it after 40 min. It seemed to help the second time I baked one, HTH icon_biggrin.gif

I did mine, it came out fine. I used Baker's Joy in the bowl, and I baked at 325, and did it for 45 minutes, and then just increased by 10 minute increments until I could put a knife in it and it came out clean....I wish I had more words of advice, but I'd say, just keep your eye on it......

Glass conducts heat differently than metal. To start with you have to decrease the heat by 25 degrees. So baking about 300 sound like a very good plan.
