I am extremely comfortable in the kitchen.
However, twice a year, I step out of my comfort zone and bake a cake.
Not a mix cake.
Any simpleton can do that.
No, this is a real, honest to goodness wreck the kitchen, beat some eggs, hold your breath and pray, scratch cake.
It's Poppy Seed cake and it is Mrs. FC's favorite cake. I make it on Mother's Day and I make it on her birthday ... twice a year.
Don't ask for the recipe, I'm too whipped from whipping sugar, butter, flour,egg yolks, poppy seed filling, vanilla, sour cream, baking soda, ... oh yeah, and separating eggs, beating eggs until they have stiff peaks, and folding eggs, to type it here. It's on the inside of the SOLO brand Poppy Seed Cake Filling can label.
Go buy yourself a can.
Jr. wanted to know how to fold an egg, ...I showed him. One more step in his renaissance man training.
It's coming out of the oven in about 10 minutes so come back around for the finished product.
