No, believe me, you're not the only one. Maybe the baking gremlins have invaded lately!

Anyway, the only thing left to do is check your oven temperature with a good oven thermometer, as others have suggested. Make sure you buy a highly rated thermometer (you can check various reviews on Amazon), since some of them can be inaccurate, and you'll be back to where you started. Put the thermometer in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 F for about 1/2 hour, then check. Call me in the morning!

It just occurred to me while replying to another post (see link), that another possible cause could be the type of pan you're using. Are you by any chance using a dark, nonstick pan?

Could you post the recipe?

Using different mixers, different equipment, can change the outcome, if you aren't used to them.
