I used rum instead of Calvados and 2{3d9e2dd3ff4a6ad7c579f6992fba32c39af0ae46cb1a0bfdb9adec03cc9df88f} milk instead of whole. I don’t know why theirs is thicker and prettier, except that they are Cook’s Illustrated and I’m me, a mediocre baker. I swear, it is delicious, despite its aesthetic shortcomings. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

Dear Disappointed, I am so sorry your dessert was inedible. It definitely has an unexpected texture, almost more of a custard than a cake. It’s a bit weird, but I like it. Mine ran too, which is why I made it on a lined baking sheet. You may prefer our applesauce cupcakes! My apologies.
