Preacher Cake bake time

luckyfatima | Jan 15, 2012 07:23 PM

This recipe says to bake the cake for in between 30-45 minutes 'depending on variables.' The only variable in the recipe is to reduce the amount of sugar if desired.

"PREACHER CAKE: Combine dry ingredients; add remaining ingredients and mix by hand.
Bake in a 9 x 13 prepared pan at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes - depending on variables. Do not over bake or it will be rubbery, but still delicious :)"

I don't want a rubbery cake. How will I know how long to bake without ruining a cake or two (unless I get lucky on the first try)?

It's kind of an interesting recipe with no liquid except for the can of pineapple in juice, and no oil/butter.

Does anyone know why this is called Preacher Cake?
