cakes and humor and mistakes that have a good outcome
I could watch Jeanne Robertson’s videos over and over again and laugh as though it was the first time I was viewing them (I’ve only seen her perform in person one time and that was many years ago).
Having never made a 7-Up Cake, I decided (after laughing out loud for the umpteenth time at Jeanne’s humorous monologue about Left Brain’s Grocery List), to bake this cake. It is very good. I made it last night after coming home from a late dinner at El Ranchito. It was close to midnight when the cake came out of the oven. AFTER putting it in the oven, I realized that I had not really prepared the pan, i.e., I had greased it – but neglected the flour. Of course, I fretted about this for the next hour and 45 minutes.
Naturally, the outside of the cake was a dark brown (for let’s face it – lard/grease is used for frying!). AND if I made this cake again, I plan to prepare the pan the exact same way! Both hubby and I love the crusty outside of the cake and the moist inner cake. It is soooo good!
