Today is my sweet boy's birthday!!!!! I cannot believe it has been four years already! I promised him a cake from scratch that he could help make, insane I know but the boy loves to cook. How could I possibly say no?
I learned from the gnocchi incident and found my glasses FIRST! Brought out the good old Joy of Cooking that I have had for 24 years. The blue bound ones are so much cooler I hope someday to have one. I chose the Sour Cream cake. It has been years since I have had one but I recall them being really yummy!
I was shocked to find I did have all the ingredients. I did use yogurt instead of sour cream. It said I could in the book, so I tried it.
This is Adam's favorite part. Mine too, but I let him do it since it is his birthday :o)
He had it all in the bowl
No more in the sifter.
I noticed when I was mixing the batter looked like a flower :o) Okay, maybe not exactly like a flower but without my glasses it was pretty darn close. And no I have not been drinking while cooking.
Whipped up the egg whites to fold in...
and we have batter that looks like batter should!!!!!
Instead of using oil and flour I use parchment paper. The cake never sticks, ever!
In the oven they go.
Now time for a bubble break
Frosted and yummy!!!! For the record I used canned frosting. Katy made me!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM!!!!!!!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!!!
