Tell us of ANY changes you might have made, Even the smallest one. And maybe we can troubleshoot.

I used 1tsp spiced rum instead of rum extract.
I might have over worked the butter & sugar. I got a phone call just before I started putting in the eggs. It lasted about 5 minutes while the mixer was on stir.

Well, I tried it again with the same result. I wonder if five large eggs is too many for this small cake?
