    Online you have 4 eggs but in this video you have more. Why the difference? Is it because you made 2lbs instead of 1lb

    I made this cake yesterday and it didn't work out so well. My family said it tasted amazing but it didn't come out exactly right. I made one batch but it wasn't enough, so I made a second. Now this was too much, but I just went with it. I had it baking for an hour or more and it was still so jiggly and raw in the middle, and it fell. I covered it with foil so it wouldn't burn and put it back for like 30mins. The bottom and sides did not have a nice color and the bottom was a super light color and had a really slippery feeling. I don't know why this happened(it was probably because it was overfilled) but I guess I'll just have to change things next time.
