I've had a sneaky suspicion that my oven was off. It always seems like I have to add time to my baking for my goodies to be fully baked. I finally bought an oven thermometer and yep- it's off. When I set it to 350, the oven thermometer only registered 325. I had to set the oven to 375 to get my oven thermometer to read 350. My cakes sure cooked quicker at 350!
Now, I just have to figure out how to recalibrate the oven. I think I have the manual for the oven..... somehwere.
