Oma's Erupting Spiced Apple Cake

Sonata:


 You're not to laugh , it's not funny .

 Note to self : When recipe  makes a startling amount of cake batter , don't just pour it all into the loaf tin as instructed , till you think it's going to overflow . Use your common sense and  stop . You won't regret it .
 And no , you're not going to see a luscious slice of Oma's Actually Rather Nice Spiced Apple Cake sitting on a pretty plate . Having been sniggered at , it's gone all shy .


Nearly as shy as me , when the house painters swooped early this morning to do next door's windows .

Hurrah - I'm not the only one who has baked cakes like this!

See . . . I'd LIKE a cake like that. All the parts that need to be cut off to make it all tidy and properly oblong . . . those are SNACKS. No calories.

Ohhhb! I can SO relate.....Bet it tasted good though!

Sorry - only read 'you're not to laugh' when it was too late. Who cares, anyway? As long as it tastes good ...

Liz said...

WEll, who hasn't done that? I bet it tasted nice though.

Lucille said...

Oh that is such a familiar sight. I never have the right size tin and can't bear to waste the mixture.

The bits that overflowed and got crunchy are THE BEST PART!!! Don't ask me how I know that.
