I make sure I put this recipe blurb at the bottom of the recipe so if they need something additional, they have my name and number right in front of them! :)

cool completely before removing?

Are you suppose to let the cake cool down completely before flipping it over and removing it from the skillet????

No, you do not need it to cool completely. I usually let it set for a few minutes. Make sure you loosen the sides. The butter you melt in the pan will keep it from sticking to the bottom. You have to be careful and get it where you want it on the platter. I have never had any problems with this recipe. It is fabulous!!
