If I knew you were coming I'd have baked a cake
Why actually I did! In celebration of my new blog, I baked one of my husbands favourite treats: Cornmeal Olive Oil Cake. It is from Martha Stewart's Everyday Foods. It is easy to whip up and adapts easily to my egg-free and gluten-free substitutions. Storage in my glass cake stand only improves its flavour. I wanted the cake stand for the aesthetics but I am most impressed by its functions. I stores baking far better than plastic. Plastic containers seem to encourage too much moisture which hastens spoilage but the dome seems to prevent that while also preventing it from going stale. I also like the idea of moving away from plastic. An old idea with relevence for today.
