I used cupcakes instead of a rectangular pan. It came out beautiful. It made 11 good size cupcakes. The top is crunchy, the middle is moist and spongy. Nice to eat while still warm. To be successful in baking this cake or any cake you have to know your oven. Cakes bake at different temp because we use different size/height/width of pans or cupcakes. Keep in mind baking time/temp vary in oven performance as well (from electric, gas or fan-forced). You have to adjust the temp according to size/deepness of the pan you are using. I do think 375 is too hot to bake this cake. The top will burn quickly. My oven is a small fan-forced oven, I set the temp to 275 F. At 30 mins, I checked it - the top was golden brown but the toothpick came out with cake batter so i put it back for another 10 mins. So mine only took 40 mins to bake cupcakes. When I used a rectangular pan, I also set the temp at 275 and checked it at 30 mins. From there I checked it every 10 mins until a toothpick inserted into center of cake came out clean.
