Recipe for Disaster

Here's my recipe for the most disastrous christmas cake ever, but I managed to turn it into a spectacular success at the end... read on :)

Honey Spice Cake

Flour 3 cups
Margarine <1>
Sugar 0.50 cup
Honey 0.75 cup
Eggs 2
Milk 4 tbsp, or as needed
Salt 1 pinch
Ground cinnamon 0.50 tsp
Baking soda 1 tsp
Grated lemon rind / Chopped apricots / whatever u want

Grease and line the cake tin. Sieve the flour, salt, cinnamon powder and soda together. Cream the fat, sugar, honey and beat in the eggs. Fold in flour, alternating with milk. Adjust milk quantity as required to make a batter. Bake at 170 C.

So... where's the disaster? Well, I forgot to put in the baking soda, because the original recipe calls for "self-raising flour" and I used ordinary flour, and of course, IT DIDNT RISE!! :( so after baking what i got was a dense, moist, rubbery mass... which by the way, tasted good :) just didnt look that great...

So what i did was... cut it into little square pieces, arrange it in an attractive pan, whip up some custard and pour it on top. It turned out LOVELY, and really made the cut for our christmas dessert :)

Merry Christmas to all!!
