I made this over the weekend. I was so excited to cut into it for breakfast the next morning too. When I took a bite out of it the next day, it was mush. Funny how it looked fabulous when it came out of the oven. What happened here?! Cakes aren’t supposed to have a soggy and wet texture! I was sooooo disappointed I was going to chuck it in the trash. There goes a wasted day. Chris, however, liked it. He said it tasted like a bread pudding. I rolled my eyes. He ended up taking it with him to work to share. I was somewhat embarrassed but whatever!
Oh wow, is it Wednesday already?! My blog has been seriously neglected. E and M just left. And I’m pooped! It has been quite an exhausting weekend. We were out all day Sunday and Monday. Mostly outdoor stuff —poolside barbecue and picnic barbecue. And I’m not into any of those things. There’s one thing you need to know about me. I don’t like getting dirty and I don’t like outdoorsy activities. OK, that’s two things. Why? It’s mainly because of the insects. I attract them. They love to eat me alive. Plus, I do not like dining with any bugs around. Who does? Aside from that, it was great seeing my nieces, E and M!
I brought home a box of raspberries from the store the other day. They were the prettiest out of the bunch. Big, plump and organic. I washed them when I got home and when I fed it to Chris, he said… “it’s kind of sour” then he made a face. More of a reason why we don’t eat fruit around here. Sigh… I hate it when that happens. How the heck do you pick out a good box of raspberries? So when that happens, I usually bake with them. It’s the only way I know to salvage them without throwing it out, or make a liqueur out of them.
Doesn’t the title of this post sound a bit strange? Ricotta and yogurt?! Well, I was going through the fridge and had stuff I needed to use up before they go bad. I had about a half cup of ricotta left but it wasn’t enough for a bread batter so I added yogurt, which also needed to be used up. Surprisingly, the bread turned out super moist and delicious. Who knew? Happy hump day!
