There are some who will quote that ‘love is what love does’. It is possibly one way of looking at it I suppose. Today is my birthday ( shh don’t tell anyone) and the first session of choir for the summer term, so I thought I would bake a cake. A gluten, dairy free cake. A lemon, almond polenta cake made with olive oil. The problem is, I reallly am not a cake maker and when the cake was finished it looked decidedly rough! Dippy in the middle and a different colour. I was a bit worried as I replaced several of the ingredients.
I did not have almond milk, so I chucked in coconut milk, and I did not have almond essence, so I used vanilla, and I used dark brown sugar, and something spooky happened, when I liquidised the lemon, all this wierd scientist experiemental vapour came wafting out of the blender.
Well the cake is out now, I left it in for 20 minutes longer than allotted and we tried the middle slice and darn me, if it is not the moistest most delicious cake I have ever tasted
