I am having trouble with a 'soggy bottom' when I bake shortbread, although I have baked them at the right temperature for the right amount of time - even too long sometimes but they always end up slightly soft underneath. Do you have any idea why this is, and any suggestions to stop this?

What size pan should I use if I do not wish to use a round cake pan for Nigella's Buttermilk Birthday Cake and how will this substitute pan affect the cooking time? I am also making this for somebody who adores lemon so how much lemon juice/zest/lemon oil/extract should I use in place of the vanilla? Thank you! Sandra Gillespie.
