A few weeks ago, I bought a gigantic jar of Nutella. Because I might want to bake with it, or spread it on bananas, or eat it straight from the jar with a spoon. But then I forgot about it, until Chris told me I needed to bake with Nutella because we had three jars. Where did these other two jars come from? How had I not eaten all of it in front of the tv yet? Who bought all this Nutella? Well, me. Let’s buy more!
I have a soft spot for loaf cakes. They’re not flashy. They don’t need to dress up all pretty. They’re happy just the way they are, simple and tasty. And everyone else is happy with them the way they are too, because they totally rule your face. I wish I were a loaf cake. Or something. Click here if you wish you were a loaf cake too!
Yesterday, I made my own cake recipe. I have, in the past, taken other cake recipes and, say, added chocolate chips to it, or switched the type of sugar used. But this was actual flour, sugar, butter, etc. quantities. I was scared. What if it didn’t work? Cooking is about being creative, but cake making is about science and, well, I’m bad at science. But it worked! It worked! Look at it! All… cakey! (more…)
