Oh it’s a doozie this week reader friends! Last Friday it was our turn to host bible study. I was short on time, as always, but I figured I could throw together an apple cake easy enough. I put the ingredients in my Bosch and all was well until I made the mistake of adding in frozen apples. Not smart. The dough turned into the thickest hardest hunk of glob you’ve ever seen. There was NO stirring anything into that. Surely it was a temperature issue, I thought, so I warmed some milk to add to it. That’s when I had to cry uncle – look at this, it was NOT mixing up and it was hard on my Bosch to keep flopping that hard mess around. It was soooo sad, because of course it was a double batch of ingredients wasted and my TIME! The dough tasted good, too, so I know it would’ve tasted really good, darn it.
So I called our local baker, who uses real butter and cream in her cakes, thankfully. She whipped one up for me and I picked it up later that afternoon. I had her just put real whipped cream on top so I didn’t have to worry about any weird stuff in the frosting.
So that’s my disappointing apple cake adventure.
I've since pulled off a yummy gluten-free salted-caramel apple cake!
