A coworker that usually works remotely was in the office this week. We were talking one day over IM and I promised her that I would make a cake for the week she was in. I decided on a lemon pound cake. It was going well until…..
Mixing the batter
Ready to bake
WTF? I have no idea how this keeps happening. Burnt, split (yes, I do know it;s upside down;) )The worst part is I usually have to leave the cake in longer than the suggested cooking time. I may have to invest in an oven thermometer to make sure that it is the correct temp. That is the only thing that I can think of that would cause this.
I forged ahead and glazed the cake. It looks good, but other people are supposed to eat this!! I am so embarrassed. I told them all I was making it, too. I suppose with the other cakes the batter was dark enough that it didn’t look that bad. I really hope it isn’t going to be a big flop 😦 I’m gonna have to leave a note that it is over done or something
Nevermind – figured out what I did wrong.
