  11. Cook for 65-75 minutes 
    1. Until you can put a toothpick in and it comes out clean 
  • Staff tip – if you don’t have eggs, ¼ cup of unsweetened applesauce can be a replacement for one egg 
  • Staff tip – make sure the butter is at room temperature which can be achieved by either setting the butter out a few hours prior to making or microwaving for 30 seconds
