AOk so here's the thing I am so busy all day today running earns but I need to bake a cake but I will be out for maybe 1 1/2 hours on one earan, now my question is can I bake a cake at a very low tempature and bake for a longer time so That while im gone it can be baking and save me that time ? If so what's the tempature I can bake a cake so that it will bake in about 1 1/2 hours ? I usually bake my cakes at 325F -350F . Can it be done ? Or is it a bad outcome? Pls help :)

I'm not sure, it might be possible, but in my opinion I wouldn't risk leaving the oven on in the house unattended. If something goes wrong you don't want to come back home and find out too late icon_surprised.gif

I bake fruitcakes at 275F for two hours.  No problem with the cake being properly cooked inside. They are not dried out either.

 

Now let me warn you: the last time I baked bread, I left it to rise and went out of the house for a one-hour errand. I got back half an hour later than I had expected, and the bread was risen too much in the pan.  I baked it that way anyway because I was hungry and didn't want to wait another hour for it to re-rise.
