So, you wanna hear a funny story about how I was making a cake and dropped an eggshell in the mixer while it was running?
So I was making a cake and dropped an eggshell in the mixer. While it was running.
Good story, huh? Guess what? It's true.
Last night on a whim I decided to make a cake. I usually make muffins. Every day. Maybe it wasn't a whim. Maybe it was three days of Noah asking me if he could have cake. And then two nights ago Blair asked for cake. Lankford apparently needed cake.
So I made one. And dropped in an eggshell while the mixer was running. I managed to dig most of it out.
Most of it...
I made the Golden Layer Cake from my 1953 Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, and frosted it with the Caramel Frosting found just a few pages later. It's delicious. Next time I'll try making it without the added eggshell.
