I managed to do some #audiobaking! This cake is for my aunt and uncle‘s “Suck It, Grandma!” Christmas Eve party. Once a year or so, we all get together and eat stuff she refused to touch, like Chinese food and chocolate cake. I went with Nigella‘s chocolate fudge cake, done as a 3-layer instead of the 2-layer specified in the recipe, and I think I‘m gonna frost it with sour cream chocolate icing. I‘ll decide closer to the date.

MandaMT This is the most original way to honor someone I‘ve ever heard of. Sounds like a fun way to share memories. I love it. 3d
BlameJennyJane Um... yum!! And cool tradition! 3d
Emilymdxn Oh my word that sounds fantastic! What book is the recipe in?? I need to make that cake ASAP 3d

xicanti @MandaMT @BlameJennyJane last year we did it for her birthday! 3d
xicanti @Emilymdxn the cake is from NIGELLA BITES and the sour cream chocolate icing is from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS. There‘s an official fudge icing in NB, but I love the sour cream icing so much that I want to run with it. Plus, the fudge cake and the sour cream cake have similar ingredients in slightly different proportions, so I figure it‘ll be a good fit. 3d
LauraJ Your family sounds fun! 3d
xicanti @LauraJ we‘re just a bunch of people who really want an excuse to eat great food. 3d

I finished my OotP reread yesterday while I made some eggnog cupcakes! They‘re now in the freezer, waiting for Christmas Eve. So‘s a nice batch of eggnog buttercream. I‘ve never tried to freeze icing before, but I got a good deal on eggnog and I didn‘t want to have to buy more in a month just to make icing. Hopefully the internet wasn‘t lying about buttercream‘s freezeability. #audiobaking

sudi Those look delicious 😋 1w
xicanti @sudi they‘re an adaptation of one of my favourite cake recipes! I tried one and do wish I‘d used a bake time a minute or so lower than the one I guessed at, but I think their time in the freezer should fix them right up. 1w

It‘s pie time y‘all!


ljuliel What kind are you making ? We‘re having pecan and pumpkin. 1w
chaoticgoodhufflepuff @ljuliel Sounds delish! For me, one apple and one pumpkin! Not a lot of people this year. I haven‘t quite mastered the art of the pecan yet! 🥧 1w
ljuliel It sounds good. Pecan isn‘t hard. You can do it ! 1w
chaoticgoodhufflepuff @ljuliel Thanks! My mother loves pecans, so I‘ll have to give it a try soon! 1w
Megabooks Pie o‘clock is a great time of day! I hope it turned out well! 1w

I listened to a big chunk of HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE while I baked one of the great mysteries of my culinary life: Nigella Lawson‘s cranberry cake. It‘s delicious, and it never looks anything like the picture because the cranberries always float up into the batter.

I think Canadian cranberries must be much lighter than the UK kind. The recipe says 6oz = 3/4 cup, but I‘ve found it‘s more like 2+ cups. #audiobaking

xicanti PLUS SIDE: because the cranberries float up, the cake forms a seriously good sugar crust. Everyone I‘ve ever served it to loves it. 4w
brilliantglow Yumm! I'm going to have to try this 4w

cariashley @LauraJ @valeriegeary @CoffeeCatsBooks it‘s really good!!! 😊 @cathipink agreed, I hate when the recipes only call for part of a can! 4w
Sace Looks delicious and uses the full can? Impressive! 3w

I made two cranberry macaroon loaves while I started my next audiobook. (The one in front is a mini; it was done before the top could change colour.) A friend three years younger than me told me HOW TO BE A BAWSE made her feel really old, but I‘m enjoying it so far. Singh‘s entertaining and supportive, even if she does clearly target her advice at teenagers and younger 20-somethings. #audiobaking

readordierachel Those sound delicious! 1mo
xicanti @readordierachel they‘re always a big hit. The base is esssentially banana bread, but the coconut makes the loaf all nubbly and splodgy and wonderful. 1mo
LauraBeth These look delicious! 😋 1mo
xicanti @LauraBeth I cut into the little one this afternoon and it was really good. 1mo

I did some housecleaning and baking this afternoon and evening while listening to this book. It is a much heavier middle grade story than I was expecting that deals with poverty, sibling responsibilities, domestic abuse, and responsible gun ownership. I appreciated the octopus facts and the analogy to her life. Zoey‘s perspective and her growth are important to share. 🐙
