AI bought a Martha Stewart igloo pan and am trying to use it but the center won't bake! I'm using a cinnamon coffee pound cake type recipe. I then put a metal cake batter tester in the middle to see if that would work , but it's not baking still. :( what am I doing wrong?!?!?

pound cake takes a long time to bake, and because the pan is so deep, it will take a really long time to cook.  Putting a cake tester or metal flour nail in is a good idea and might help, but I would lower the temperature to 325 (300 convection) so the outside doesn't get overcooked, and give it a long time.  Depending on your recipe, it may be well over an hour.  It may not take as long if you use a regular, less dense cake recipe.  Good luck!

AI cooked it at 325 for two hours. What type of cakes are less dense ? I have recipes for bundt cakes. I never made one, so I do not know if it is less dense.
