I love the Black Magic recipe and it's usually a no-fail for me..but I have recently tried baking it in a 9"x13" pan and it keeps sinking in the middle. I have used icing to build it up so it's nice a level when frosted but that is too much frosting to cake. I live in Missouri, my powder and soda are both new and I have not tried a nail yet because I have never needed one in such a small pan, but I will try that tonight. Has anyone had similar issues with this cake? I will add that when I bake this cake in rounds, anything from a 6" to a 9", it bakes perfectly with no sinking.

that's odd--and it's not underbaked/overbaked?
for some reason i think i'd add one additional tablespoon of flour to the 9x13 batch
and watch it like a hawk for the moment it's done
i often make the perfectly perfect hershey cocoa recipe on the can cake and it's way runny too but it bakes great
i did read that some people have trouble with that 'perfectly perfect' one for cupcakes
it's funny how recipes play out sometimes
i used to have one that would sink the 6" cake all the time--all the rest were fine--weird
tipo? tiepoe? typow? oh was theire a mistpeling?
