Oven Burns the Bottom of Baked Goods?
Your oven might be too hot, like mine. This can happen if the thermostat is inaccurate. I have to subtract 150 from the temperature called for in the recipe, which I learned by trial and error. But I since learned that an easier way to test your oven temperature...
