I tried to respond to your question via email, but had no success so hopefully you will see my response here: Sandi, this cake takes a very long time to cook and it is very dense. I have had this problem recently, but not with this cake. My cakes have taken no less than 1 1/2 hours to bake and sometimes closer to 2 hours. One time I made it I raised the temp up to 325Degrees and cooked for a while. I have never had to do this, but one suggestion you might try is to take a sharp knife and after your cake tests done take the knife and slice a little slit into the top of the cake near the testing place and slip your knife blade tip down a little way and kind of pull it apart very slightly and see if you can tell what is beneath the immediate top? I made it in a 9x13 once and I am sure that it took near 2 hours to bake. It is not one that is high rising so I would just bake it a little more if it seems doughy when you try this. I have had other cakes test out done for me and then find out after I take them out of the oven that they are not done when I am getting ready to flip them out of the pan. It is a moist cake, but there is a lot of difference between moist and doughy so you should be able to tell. If you have any more problems let me know.
