There has been dense black fog filling the kitchen for the past few weeks. It has been getting worse as the days have passed. This has made it difficult to achieve anything. I think Winston Churchill called it his black dog, however I like dogs too much to want to associate them with these times and anyway I wouldn't want to upset Florence.
Over the last day or so I think the fog has started to thin a little, enough anyway for me to see to make another cake from the new book.
I made a Lemon Drizzle Cake. This is what it looks like in the book
and this is what mine looks like.
I think it's a bit too brown on the outside and that is because I had to cook it for 20 minutes longer than the recipe said. I have a c**p oven obviously!
It tastes delicious and there is a lot less than this left now. As this is the third cake I have now made from this book and I have had to tweak each one I'm beginning to wonder if anyone actually tried the recipes before they published it. Perhaps I'm being unfair, I'll have to try a few more to be sure.
Hope you all have good weeks, hopefully I'll be back soon.
