It's also almost impossible to overbake. A couple years ago I was making one as an Xmas gift for friends. I went to bed, forgetting to remove the cake from the oven, and it baked all night long. When I finally got it out of the oven (over 7 hours after it went in) the cake was perfectly OK except for a suface layer about +" deep that was a bit dry. I made another cake for the gift, but my family gobbled the "mistake" in short order.
