    So I made the cake according to directions and I put it in two round cake pans. It is taking a lot longer than 25 minutes. Thoughts?

    • Anita Fowler says:

      I will make it again this weekend and let you know if it is in 2 pans how long it takes.

    • Anita Fowler says:

      I made it again, it was fantastic. But you were right, it took longer. Mine took 32 minutes. I changed the recipe to indicate that. I asked my mom and she said she presses her finger lightly in the middle and when it springs up its done. She starts checking at 25 minutes. So her recipe didn’t have that written down. I’ve added it to it.
