I was going to try to give baking scones another go today, but unfortunately, I was just so exhausted by the time that I came home and couldn’t face baking. It has been a very long day and I just can not think of anything else but my bed. Having another go at making scones will have to wait until tomorrow. But, I couldn’t just leave my project for another day though. I do not want to lose my momentum or my enthusiasm. So, rather than exhaust myself trying to bake, I decided to do what I had expected to be doing today as well, I looked for a cake recipe.
This was far more difficult than the scones. I couldn’t turn to a baking authority for the cake, especially as I wanted a light, fluffy American cake. I’m not the biggest fan of the British cakes which I find stodgy and a bit heavy. So, I turned to my trusty Pinterest account again to see if I could find a cake recipe that would fit my desires. I was surprised at how few cake recipes both my baking and desserts boards actually contained. It came down to 2 of them. This one, which included layers and this one, which was a basic white cake. Since they were very simple, I decided to go with the sprinkles cake. Mostly, because it wasn’t a layer cake, which is far beyond my current baking prowess, but also because I loved the sprinkles. So, tomorrow, I’ll do a check of the cabinets to see what ingredients I already have and I will get to ordering. And hopefully, I will be try baking another batch of scones too.
