Last night close to midnight I was reminded of a meeting that I must attend tonight and told that I was also expected to bring a covered dish!
I tossed and turned all night "fixing" something to take. Since the trip there is over an hour, I can't take anything that must be hot or cold... Coming up with something to fix is hard for me.
So, I remembered my good friend, Sue. She makes the BEST pound cake. I found her recipe a few months ago and my daughter made it and it was soooooooo good! I thought, well, surely I can do that... I'll put on my "martha" hat and try it!
I had to send to the store for some cake flour and also sour cream. I followed the directions and carefully poured it into my cake pan. It just so happens to have been my grandmother's cake pan. It is in two parts... I have used it many times before so didn't worry about it.
About half way through the process I decided to look in on the cake... much to my horror, the top of the baking stone underneath the cake was completely covered in batter!!!! The batter leaked out!
I let it continue to cook and when I took it out, this is what I got... HALF a cake!
Here is the other half - half eaten! The good thing is, we were able to taste it before we have to take it. How embarrassing to take half a cake to meet people I have never met before!
I much prefer being "Merrie" to "Martha"... but occasionally it would be nice to do something"good"!
