I'm trying to modify a recipe for a cake which calls for 3 cups of shredded butter nut squash. I thought I could replace this with roughly the same amount of pureed pumpkin (like what you would get in a jar).
However, the cake is still moist inside, after more than doubling the baking time it originally called for.
I don't mind that the consistency is too wet, I'm only concerned about cooking the eggs enough. Unfortunately, I don't have a thermometer to test the internal temperature. Is it safe to assume that at 350 degrees F, with the cake baking for more than 2 hours, that it reached the internal temperature of 138 degrees?
The cake is about 1.5 inches in height. I baked it for 1:10 minutes, then an extra 1 hour with tin foil on top (to prevent the top from burning). The top and bottom of the cake are not moist at all.
