I love to bake! And not to brag, but I’m pretty good at it. I’d really like to put in some more practice with decorating but I can’t bake very often. When I do, I eat it allllll
What do you like to bake?
What are some of your favorite baking tips and tricks?
5 eggs separated whip whites extra stiffI bake pineapple blueberry pound cake for a breakfast staple. /QUOTE]
Cake for breakfast sounds deliciously wicked. Any chance of the recipe, please?
third cup yogurt stirred w/ pinch of baking soda
6 tablespoons butter creamed w/ a cup and a half granulated sugar
9 x 15 inch metal cake pan buttered and floured
zest one big lemon
375 degree Fahrenheit preheat oven
mix two cups white flour w/ 2 teaspoons baking powder
5 egg yolks, splash vanilla and zest mixed into yogurt
mix yolk combo and creamed sugar combo thoroughly
add flour combo and mix thoroughly
fold in beaten whites
ease into baking pan and spread gently
top with thin sliced pineapple and frozen blueberries, to taste, I use a lot
bake 45 min
I use one chunk of pineapple which I have ripened and cleaned and cut into eight chunks and frozen... thoroughly thawed
fresh blueberries work but not as good
sorry about all the 'English' units
hope this makes sense?
I cut the cake into eight pieces and wrap each in cling wrap
we eat one each day, the first two fresh the rest frozen
if, in the morning, none has been previously taken out to thaw, they're okay tasting frozen if sliced thin
(this recipe is pretty forgiving, I rarely measure accurately)
edit I found my original starting recipe printout for this which is from allrecipe dot com recipe ID 7792 which I printed in 2013. That recipe is much smaller and wayyyy more butter and uses plums, which are getting ripe if it doesn't rain and which are really good in the cake but not available as much as pineapple and blueberies.
