That would make sense. I find that it does take a long time to bake. Thank you for you input.
Thank you Mimi for this recipe. It beats all the other recipes I've tested (over a dozen). I've tried your original recipe but after tasting the recipe with buttermilk versus sour cream, we switched to sour cream. I can't remember if the original recipe created this type of crust.   I test my oven regularly but maybe I should look at it again.   I use a professional cake release spray.   Maybe I'll try the Wilton bake-even strips....that I have somewhere in my kit.
I have been making a very good yellow cake recipe inspired by mimifix. I just changed the buttermilk for sour cream.   Everyone loves it but it leave a thick crust around the cake which I have to remove everytime.   I don't have this problem with other recipes.

You could use some chocolate extract. Maybe you cannot use alcohol, but sometimes I replace the water for chocolate stout (beer). I have also read some posts of people adding chocolate syrup on top of their cake after baking.

It's a cake decorating video (not really a tutorial) but I was amazed with his technique to box the cakes. Never thought about using spray foam.
In my opinion, it taste a lot like the buttercream used for store bought cakes (not a bad thing at's really good).   I usually use Swiss meringue buttercream. I think I will use Indydebi's for children's cakes or when the weather is humid and very warm.
