I’ve developed a guide on preparing dessert for those of us who are “baking challenged.”
- Get baking mix from shelf.
- Clean up baking mix and get second box that wasn’t already opened.
- Open box with trusty pocket knife.
- Clean wound created by trusty pocket knife.
- Pour contents of box into bowl.
- Add egg to bowl.
- Take egg out and crack it, then re-add to bowl
- Pick shell fragments from bowl.
- Search for spoon in cabinet, find out all spoons are used.
- Take dirty spoon from sink and hope no one notices.
- Mix content in bowl until your hand feels like you hit it repeatedly against a wall.
- Get out electric mixer.
- Spend ten minutes untangling clothing from electric mixer.
- Go back to using spoon.
- Pour batter into cake pan.
- Remember you were supposed to grease pan.
- Try to move batter with spoon and spray cooking spray underneath.
- End up with batter swimming in grease.
- Remember to pre-heat oven and wait, while batter soaks up even more grease.
- Put pan in oven.
- Wait too long.
- Turn off oven and open windows to let smoke out.
- Take out greasy, burned cake and throw away.
- Serve doughnuts instead.
Is this how Mother taught you to bake?
No, Mother never let me bake as a child. I think it was because I managed to melt the stove the one time she let me try.
I’ve never gotten to the donuts…
I hit step 11 and lay down and sleep…
That means you had a lot of cake batter to eat instead of a burnt cake. 🙂
You are so wise and perceptive, Car…
I’m glad you liked my humble cake baking guide. 🙂
Have you been peeking into my kitchen?
Yes. I bought a new device called Kitchen Peek and tried it out on you.
