[CnD] to Marilyn-the Duncan Hines coffee cake

My mom used to say the best cake was one that fell apart.  Doesn't help, though, if you're planning to give it away and want it to look pretty!  <g<

I've used a pan and make a sheet cake before instead of a tube pan or whatever, but I can't say for sure if it'd be okay.

Enjoy the crumbs and such, and if your friends taste it, if it's as good as you say, they won't care that it fell apart; it'll still make the stomach happy!

I tried this recipe. The taste is fabulous; however, I am not good with those pans and the cake fell apart! I think there are some salvageable parts; I had planned to give it to a couple of friends and if they are kind, they will take it because it's way too good to keep around!

I was thinking of using a 13x9 pan; would  that have worked?

The toothpick did come out cleanly, I have baked for years, and it definitely tastes done.

I used a silicone pan and will admit I don't like them much but thought I'd follow the recipe.

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. And I will make it again-have to figure out what I didn't do correctly and definitely change the pan.

Thanks for the recipe-I guess! <smile> It tastes way too good!

Oh and do you really mix it for ten minutes? Why is that? The mixing bowl I used was a bit too small; in future I'll use my KitchenAid stand mixer and change the pan!
