I apologize for being late with this post. I have been under the weather for a bit with two different things at two separate times. In between I did manage to try two new recipes.
For week six I made popovers. I had wanted to try them forever, but I just never got around to it. One day we were having ham and corn chowder for lunch, and I decided popovers would be a nice addition. We liked them well enough that I plan to get a popover pan so they can be done properly. I did not get a picture as I simply felt too bad. We also ended up with a guest that day so all of the popovers were eaten.
Week 7 had a few days when I felt better. We were having a meal of leftovers from the Valentine Banquet at church. Our pastor had asked me to make rolls. At the last minute I decided to make a dessert. I had seen a recipe from King Arthur Flour for a Tanyard Farm Buttermilk Cake. I had all of the ingredients on hand, and it was basic to make.
At the time I did not take a photo. It was late, and I figured I would have plenty leftover. The plan was to get a good picture the following day. This is what I brought home:
I cannot begin to tell you how much everyone loved this cake. I thought there was going to be a fight for the extra pieces. I was not going to step in the middle of that just to get a piece for a photo. Instead you get a picture of the empty pan, which I say is the best sign of how good a cake was.
If you get the chance, I highly recommend this cake. The crowd I served this to is hard to please. For them to argue over who would take the extra pieces home means it was very good.
I have no idea what I will make for week 8, but I am certain that I will find something.
