Have you ever just had the urge to be good at something that you are simply horrible at? Well, for me that is baking. I cannot bake, like, at all. I am nervous every time I come to try it, it is an art, and I am not an artist. I am too heavy handed and blasé about it all. So, this is it, I am determined to get this. By the end of the year I will be able to have at least one dish that I can bake well consistently.
So I am starting a review process. Every time I bake, I will photograph it, taste it, review it and correct my mistakes. Here are my notes.
The Attempt: Carrot Cake
Did I follow the recipe: yes… mostly
Decoration: I think I did ok
Taste: it was ok…not earth shattering
I followed the recipe to the letter when it came to weighing and measuring, but then I didn’t think and used the wrong size cake tin. So, when I put the cake in the oven and baked it for the minimum amount of recommended time, it was a little brunt. I would say it was overcooked by about 10 minutes. That wasn’t enough to ruin the flavour of the cake, but it was enough to make the sides and bottom a little unpleasant. Next time look at the size of the cake tin required and adjust accordingly.
Let me know in the comments what I should bake next.
Until next time.
