not a recipe today, but a lament: sometimes cakes rise pretty and bake up golden, but they taste insipid and of nothing, really. this was supposed to be a lemony, buttery cake, and all it was was a soft, fluffy block of insipidness.
and to add insult to injury, the cake didn’t even last two days – stored in a container, as I always do – before it started to smell a little sour – in a bad spoiling sort of way, so I couldn’t even throw it into a trifle or some sort of mask-the-blahness confection.
have you any idea why some cakes spoil faster than others? I haven’t switched kitchens, and this was a standard butter-flour-lemon-egg recipes – I couldn’t really figure it out.
but onwards, and upwards! I’ve recently come back from a bali getaway – and I promise the photo-posts are coming soon.
