What came from my oven..
A few days ago.. scratch that.. last Monday, I decided to bake yet another cake. I had leftover tinned pineapples and peaches from my previous cakes so I decided to make a one with a mixture of both of these just to finish it of before it rots in my fridge and since a staff here complained that he never gets any of my cakes (mcm la sedap sgt kaaannn haha..), I decided to give them to the akak² and adik² technician.
I dunno what came over my oven but apprantly it now takes less time for me to bake a cake. But me being me, thought it was business as usual in the baking department so even when I smelt something burning (some of the fruit syrup had dripped on my 'oven floor', I thought it was the sugar in the syrup burning), I didn't bother to check. It was only when my heart told me something wasn't right that I went to my oven and of course la melompat trying to save my cake..
This is what I get for ignoring the smells!
Luckily only the top part was burnt so I just had to cut it of. My cake turned out a bit short, but luckily, it was still good.. Alhamdulillah!
On a more positive note, the leftover peaches I talked about earlier came from this cake.. tadaaaa!
It was more or less like the pineapple upside down only this time with peaches. Just wanted to see which one came out nicer. I've got a 50-50 response with some prefering the pudding-ey texture of the peach topping, while others prefer the crunchy pineapple top.. oh well!
