As you know our recent apple picking adventure led to an awful lot of apples in our house, so I dusted off my apron and made a lovely apple cake.
As I am not much of a baker, I didn’t have all the supplies I needed: I headed to the store for my supplies and I had to borrow the bunt cake pan from my neighbor.
I feel like a real Martha Stewart
Here is the recipe that I got from allrecipes.com
I chopped up the apples, combined the yummy dry ingredients like cinnamon and then added the wet ingredients. I mixed it all together and then waited a whopping 1 1/2 hours for it to be done!
Imagine my disappointment when this was what I found:
The cake was crumbly and definitely didn’t look like the picture! And when I tasted the cake, it was AWFUL!!! It tasted like plain old dried up flour ;(
That’s when I checked my ingredients again and realized my mistake…..I left out 2 cups of sugar!
I am not having a great track record – remember my last post about the apple picking and how I forgot my wallet at home! Now I used those yummy apples for a cake that was a complete flop, because I forgot a key ingredient!
Guess I am not quite Martha Stewart yet, lol!
I think dear readers, I am apparently losing my mind. Lets just hope I don’t forget my kids somewhere by accident 😉
Well at least I have plenty more apples to make a new recipe. Lets hope it turns out doubly delicious! Back to the store I go for more supplies.
Have you ever left out key ingredients or had a baking flop? Please tell me I am not alone!!
