** Batter is unusually thick and sticky. If you're like me and you're always convinced you're doing it wrong, see video in post.
** Cake will bake more quickly in a dark colored metal tube pan than the one pictured in this post (lightly colored non-stick coating.) The difference could be about a half an hour. Check for color and doneness accordingly.
