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 .
