I love baking. I love the way the house smells when something's in the oven. I love mixing the bowl. I love using my spatula (I LOOOOVE spatulas!).
I hate when things I bake and spend SO much time on = bitter and GROSS and inedible!
And that's what happened with Nigella Lawson's (Gluten-free) Clementine Cake. I had sooo many clementines left over, so I was excited to use them all. Literally. The entire clementine goes into the cake, pith and all. Unfortunately, the clementines I used were overripe to say the leaset and so my cake turned out extremely bitter. It just goes to show, you get what you put into something.
Oh well, perhaps I'll make it another time with better clementines.
Has anyone ever made this cake? It seems to be pretty popular on the blogosphere. Do you have any awful baking FAIL stories? Please make me feel better! :)
