my aunt gave me a load of cooking apples from her tree. Mum suggested I try making Norwegian apple cake. Turned out quite nice :3

Edit: I just had a slice with caramel icecream

Is that actually you?  How very normal.  But I think ruining a good apple by baking it is sad.

Depands really, when I make apple pie (this is apple cake not pie) I coat the apples in cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar to give it flavor.

Tried a combo of actually ripe Golden Delicious and Honeycrisp?

Scones for cream tea, still warm!

What kind of yeast?  Mine is good for bread but I want better for buns.

I don't think I have ever had a scone.  And aside from sandwich bread I make, not much else wheat starch.  OK, pancakes and spaghetti (which I prefer to rice under my stir-fries)....  Oh, OK, I made toll house cookies last night.

That looks right.

My Banana Cake, from Mom Cavebear, From Gramma Cavebear:

Grease tube pan. 

Sift into bowl 1 1/2 cup AP flour, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 pinch salt.

Separate 2 eggs into yolks and whites.  Make well in center of of bowl.  Drop in the 2 yolks, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 1/4 cup soured milk (1/4 cup whole milk + 1 tbs vinegar whisked), and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Beat 2 minutes.

Add 1 cup mashed ripe banana and 1.2 cup chopped walnut pieces.

Separately, whip the 2 egg whites, until stiff.  Fold gently into the batter.

Pour into tube cake pan.  Bake at 350F 45 minutes.  Cool in pan. 

Adding parchment paper around pan sides and bottom helps with removal.

  __________

Now tell me the timing for doing that with the muffin trays.  Mom never did that.

Have a skewer, insert it into the muffin. If it comes out clean, it is done.

Thank you.  I am always cautious with anything involving eggs being sufficiently cooked.  But not overcooked either.
