I mistakenly baked my Carrot Cake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes as opposed to the correct temperature of 325 degrees for the same amount of time. What will happen? Do I need to throw it away?

    It won't be poison - have you tried a bite? – rfusca Mar 17 '14 at 17:40
  • Cover it in icing to cover it up. – NBenatar Mar 17 '14 at 20:07

It is likely to be quite over-baked, probably quite dry and unpleasant on the outside. It may also develop an unpleasant scorched flavor, especially on the outside.

It will not be unsafe, however.
