Making Cake

In my attempts to spit out half-way decent posts for the Writing Workshops this week, I forgot to mention an accomplishment.. I actually baked a Cinnamon Coffee Cake from scratch this past weekend.

It’s sad, isn’t it, that I have to point out that I actually used real flour and everything?  Haha.

It actually turned out pretty good.  I think it’s a little dry, but both AMP and The Brother-in-Law both say that it tastes great. 

I wanted to make it with fresh apples for a little more moisture to it, but couldn’t be bothered going to the store when I realized I had all the other ingredients I needed right at home, but I’m going to try that next time.

I was pretty happy with myself that I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried at least.

Now, for the big challenge… Replicating my mother’s amazing tiramisu for a ‘International’ themed get-together next week.. :S
   Have I mentioned yet how nerve-wracking it is for me to cook for other people?!

    • I actually start to hyperventilate at the thought of cooking for other people. It’s ridiculous! But, thank you, I hope the tiramisu works out.

      Oh and I’m a huge cinnamon fan.. I love anything if its cinnamon-ized.. :)

  1. Yeah, no doubt you find it terrifying cooking for other people, especially something like tiramisu. I have never made it, but I make it a policy to never bake anything I’m not quite sure of the spelling of.
    Good luck!

    • Haha.. That’s a great policy.. I’m Italian tho, so I can’t use that excuse for making tiramisu.. I hope it works out. My mom is planning on helping me make it, so it should be fine. Worst case scenario, she’ll make me one if mine sucks, haha. Thanks for stopping by! :)
