Yesterday, I had a complete disaster in the kitchen. I followed a new recipe from a little book I had got from the supermarket. On the cover, it said that all recipes had been tested three times. It looked easy enough and sounded delicious. But the cake did not rise at all, thinking that it would be alright, I carried on with making this super icing using the very best of chocolates. Then that did not set! So the lot went into the rubbish bin.
A bit fed up at this stage, as you can imagine. Today I went back to the supermarket and bought a packet cake mix. Vanilla Butter cake, No Name brand. Shock, horror! Have you ever used them? I got quite a surprise, add two eggs, milk and butter, and mix for three minutes.
I greased a tin and put a thick layer of Roses marmalade in the bottom. On went the cake mix and into the oven. This is the end result. We had it after dinner tonight with some lovely creamy custard. Amazingly good.
What am I saying here? These are good for people like me who have a disaster in the kitchen or simply lose their cooking mojo. Next time I am in the supermarket, I shall stock up on these I think. (There's one in chocolate, Yippee)
It might look ugly but it sure tastes good!
