Yes I was lolling about, baking lemon pound cake now that I have an oven.
In my spiffy new red bread pans, which I failed to realize were not full size.
It's been so long since I baked in a full size oven, my eye can no longer calibrate baking dish size correctly.
I just divided the batter into two pans and baked for half as long.
Then I ruined it with bananas and whipped cream.
Honestly if you'd EVER told me bananas and whipped cream could ruin anything I'd have snorted with laughter.
Joke's on me.
The lemon flavor is too delicate to support chunks of banana and a big taste like whipped cream.**
I would have done better maybe with just leaving it au naturel.
I've done that on revisions too.
Been too clever for my own damn good.
MOST of the time I catch it, but sometimes I look back at pitch letters I wrote some years back and think holy moly, what the Helvetica was I thinking.
Have you been too clever for your own good?
How long did it take you to notice?
**Monday afternoon update.
I had a piece of the lemon pound cake au naturel and oh my godiva, yes, it was delicious. Plain, simple, yummy. I need to remember this when I'm tempted to start laying things on!
