|Apple Batter Cake|
I think those lazy, hazy days of summer have finally gone, we had wintry showers of rain and sleet today. It was definitely not a gardening day so I decided to do some baking. I wanted to use up some of our apples so I made an Apple Batter Cake.
I put the mix into the tin and placed it carefully in the oven to bake for fifty minutes. After about ten minutes I could smell something burning. Unfortunately I didn't line the cake tin properly and the batter had leaked out all over the base of my oven. It was a bit of a disaster but I served it up anyway. Paul said it reminded him of Bread and Butter Pudding...without the bread.

I remember I once had a similar experience. You can't win 'em all.ReplyDelete
I should have stayed out of the kitchen and taken Rick for a walk.Delete
An apple crumble might have been easier, safer, more assured of success?ReplyDelete
Just thought I'd try something different. Even my crumbles aren't guaranteed to come out right!Delete
At least you have the good grace to admit to your kitchen mistakes.ReplyDelete
I'm famous for my cooking disasters.Delete
How are you on cheese sandwiches?Delete
Do you want some Branston with that?Delete
Let's not get complicated.Delete
A 'Disaster Book of Recipes' might be a good idea. I have an offering of my 'Asparagus Omelet', where I liquidised everything together before frying; it was horrendous.ReplyDelete
Found a few Cepes yesterday.... shall go hunting again today. Cold here.
It might even be a best seller!Delete
I made a Plum Clafoutis once which was so bad that I put it out for the birds. Even they didn't like it and dropped it all over a neighbours car!Delete
I seem to remember making a 'not so nice' cherry clafoutis once.Delete
It is a pain when we do these things and give ourselves the job of the clean up afterwards. Been there, done that! The cake looks nice though.ReplyDelete
It tasted better today cold from the fridge.Delete
The 'clean & shiny oven' didn't last long. Lots of hot puds taste better after a night of consolidation in the fridge - and they don't make the ice cream melt.ReplyDelete
Clean and shiny again today!Delete
That looks like something that would happen in my kitchen! Haha. Oh well. As Weaver said, you can't win 'em all, right? :)ReplyDelete
I'm going to attempt a tarte tatin at the weekend, I just know it will stick to the pan!Delete
