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!

  1. Oooooh, that sounds and looks yummy, Hope!

  2. 5 eggs!? That must have a very dense texture right? Or is it just plain huge? The texture looks really nice and fluffy.
