Fill the larger dish with roughly 1-inch of hot water.
Bake for 25 minutes, then reduce the heat to 285°F (140°C), and bake for another 55 minutes, until the cake has risen almost double its batter height.
Remove from the oven and let cool for a minute.
Unclasp the springform pan and remove its sides.
Let cool for a few more minutes.

Enjoy (warm or cold) and refrigerate after an hour.
Tip: Make and put fruit sauce on the side if desired. Most recipes combine chopped berries with some sugar, water, and a little bit of lemon juice.
