I put a carrot cake (10") in the oven and it was meant to have been baked in 2 hours and 15 mins. A whole hour has passed after that time and it is still very moist when I put a knife threw it. I don't know whether to take it out ot not..

Moist is good as long as it's not uncooked batter on your knife. You should have moist crumbs, especially with carrot cake.

Are you cooking it on a lower setting than you normally would? This would increase baking time.

Is your oven getting as hot as it should? You might try checking it with an oven thermometer to make sure.

Something to think about for future baking, use a heating core or upside down flower nails in cakes 10" or larger for more even baking.

Hope you get it figured out! Good luck!

Thanks but I've used those flower nails before and it didn't do anything. I use baking strips which seem to work. I put an 11" batter inside a 10" cake but still it shoudln't have taken a whole hour overtime. I may have to get a thermometer...
