I was looking forward to this baking assignment, heck I voted for it, and the picture looked so pretty but apparently I have had troubles with directions lately. I reviewed the ingredients and I had everything except the fresh orange which I bought. What I didn’t notice was the picture was the Bonne Idee that included poached oranges three more additional oranges which I didn’t have. My day was jammed packed enough and an additional shopping trip and poaching oranges was not going to fit the plan.
I made the cake which was simple enough but some how I managed to mess that up too. I cooked it for 20 minutes and a toothpick came out clean so I took it out thinking it was done. When I removed the cake from the pan, it fell in the center. This picture does not do the damage justice. My husband said “what happened?” Clearly I should have baked it the additional 5 minutes. This is one of the bigger flops I have made lately and I should re-do it to redeem myself but that is not in the plan.
To see something that was baked correctly go here.
