Check out your baking powder. This happened to me and the problem was that my baking powder was old and had lost its oomph. Since the cake didn't rise right, it still looked like raw dough, even though it wasn't.

What types of cake are you baking when this happens?

Fudge brownies are wet looking when completely baked, is this what you're talking about.
