Emergency - cakes are in the oven! Joy of Cooking Sponge cake recipe error!! (ETA crisis averted)

Thought I read through everything get to the baking instructions and it says: "Bake until the top springs back when lightly pressed and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean; about 2 minutes for two round pans, 40 to 50 minutes for a springform or tube pan." TWO minutes??? Surely they mean 20???

I can test for doneness but TWO minutes?! Baking for dear daughter's 10th birthday party this afternoon so no time for a do-over.
