Thanks. I think the thermometer broke too . I put it up and left it for another 15 min. It was a bit crisp on top and fell apart underneath! But it was salvageable! Camp is a great idea. I used to have as lovely biscuit recipe with that.
It tasted nice but couldn't have sold it to a cafe!

oh dear reup, i just baked a coffee and walnut this very minute, i back for a local cafe, i always use the same recipe, an 8oz mix with about 60 grms of chopped walnuts and i use camp coffee as you can pour however much you require, i cook it in two 8inch tins for 30 mins on gas 4 or 160 fan/ 180 normal, hope that helps.

Got the recipe online followed to the letter. Just open the oven and its not cooked at all and some of it has overflowed the tons.

I have as problem with their numbers rubbing off the temp dial but I used an oven thermometer.

Should I turn up dial or cook for longer. Am worried it will be burned on top but uncooked inside.

Have never had this with a caked before!
