Thanks Flourgirl. I’m so happy to be back in the human race!!
How did your experiment go? Did the baking sheets help? I’m curious about that recipe or really any recipe that uses honey. One can use honey instead of corn syrup!
I just printed out the Almond Galette recipe and plan on making the pastry Sat. night and baking it Sun. morning. Yummm. I will love it, I’m sure, plus it is so pretty. See if I can make it look as pretty as Prettycake did.
Hope your Honey Cake was perfect. What is the story about the Honey Cake?
Hope you have a good evening, dear flourgirl!
I can’t wait to see your Almond Galette. I’m sure you will make it beautiful. Are you planning on bringing it to work?
How is your grandma doing?
I substitute Lyle’s syrup for corn syrup. It has always worked beautifully. both myself and my husband’s bosses wife made the same recipe, a bread pudding, one gathering. She used corn syrup. I used Lyle’s golden Syrup. Yep, you guessed it. Everyone openly told me they preferred my bread pudding.
The story with the Honey Cake is: My uncle grew up eating Honey Cake. He is about to turn 94 and lives in a nursing home. We speak twice/week. Every time I tell him about my baking, he tells me how he wishes he could have some. He feels it is miserable in this facility and he hates the food. I just want to send him a cake with which he is familiar. One which will bring back memories of days long gone.
The Honey Cake did come out perfect. This cake tastes better with each passing day.
I didn’t follow the mixing directions of the author, Marcy Goldman. She uses what seems like the batter technique. Instead, I used Rose’s mixing method applied to the Many Splendid Quick Bread in RHC. As Rose mentions, the batter does get foamy in the Honey Cake batter too. It’s really the best way to mix this cake for me because mixing by hand doesn’t work for my injury.
I baked the Sour Cream Cinnamon Crumb Cake from Baked 1 today. We have a memorial service tomorrow. I’ll be brining it. It is a 9 x 13 cake.
Have a good night Abbey. Enjoy making your Almond Galette!
