The cake is delicious, with a light moist crumb. That's not the issue.

If you look at the recipe you'll see there is no instruction on how to prepare the pans. It just says to pour the batter into the prepared pans. I assumed that meant greased and floured.

The other part of the issue is that the cake layers broke apart when I inverted the pan and tried to get the cake out. Considering the recipe stressed mixing for certain times to "build structure"...
