It sounds like you may have a variety of problems. First, make sure the oven is the correct temperature that you set. Following the temperature your recipe or mix calls for, set the oven thermostat and allow the oven to preheat about 10 minutes. Then, place an oven thermometer in the center (top to bottom and side to side) and close the oven door. After 15 minutes, check the temperature on the thermometer. If the thermometer reads too low, you’ll need to raise the thermostat; if it’s too hot, lower the thermostat.
When baking in your mini oven, make sure the pan you are using isn’t too large. You need to make sure there is at least 2 inches of space between the edge of the pan and the oven sides. This allows the heat to circulate properly through the oven.
It also sounds like the pan might be too close to the heating element of the oven, causing the bottom to burn. The baking pan should sit on a rack in the middle or the top third of the oven.
