    I made this, the batter was phenomenal, and then.. the cake didn't turn out! It was in the oven for 50 minutes and it was still wet. It also cooked over. (Yes, I used the right size pan) What did I do wrong??

    Did anyone else have trouble with getting nice even slices from the Satsumas? The segments inside were not in any way uniform. Bummer.

    Is it just me or was there way too much butter? I ended up pouring off 1/4 of the melted butter after I saw how much was in the pan. Next time I will half the melted butter to see how it turns out. Other than that I loved the flavor and really enjoyed the bitter, sour, sweet combination.

    "Arrange mandarin slices in a circle over sugar in pan, starting in the center and spiraling outward, overlapping slices slightly." The butter-sugar mixture that you've baked in the oven stays in the pan, you then layer the mandarin slices on top of the sugar-mixture."
