I have tried the Chocolate Pound Cake from the Chocolate baking book by Rose and the Bernachon’s 7 times at last count. Each time the same thing happens….
The cake burns on the sides and top, yet is still raw in the center after an hour of baking (the time listed in the recipe is 40 minutes)
I have triple checked the oven and it holds temp perfectly. I also tried different pans.
The recipe calls for the pound cake to bake at 400 degrees (which seems high) for only 40 minutes (which is short for most pound cakes)
How can I get this right???
