I baked mine for 30 minutes but, even though they seemed firm to the touch, they were very wet and spongy on the inside. The tops could have been a bit browner too, so I suggest baking them 35-40 minutes or until very brown on top. I'm not sure if that will make that much difference though because there is a lot of liquid in the batter. These don't taste bad, but the texture is a dead giveaway that these are low carb.
