  1. I just made this for the second time and both times I had the same experience that the cooking time 55-65 minutes was very insufficient…because the skewer is not coming out batter-free. I leave it in another 5 min, another 5 min then the edges start to become overdone…I doubt my oven temp is off because I typically have no problems like this….anyone else have this issue? It IS delicious 💕
