The inflation baking month was so popular I am going to keep it going in June. But this is the last week that I am making impossible cakes as I am kind of getting bored with them.
Instead I made a list highlighting other low cost baking. As always this entire thing is an experiment so we’ll see starting next week. And these bakes won’t require frosting.
I hate making frosting.
And I also got a $20 donation for ingredients. This brings my grand total of donations to $50 and a bag of flour in 7 and half years.
I don’t want to be that person who asks for money to do something I enjoy but someone asked why don’t you? And handed me $20. I took it and thanked her. I explained that I had spent part of the morning looking at all the grocery stores in town, mapping out their sale ads and websites, looking for the best price on butter.
No, I won’t use margarine.
She said she’d bring me veggies from her garden over the summer too. I will have to plan for that.
The impossible cakelet for the week was carrot cake. Finally! I’ve been trying to make this one for three weeks. No eggs in this one; the apple cider vinegar and baking soda provided the lift. I used my mini muffin tins and baked for 15-18 minutes a batch.
And served the frosting on the side.
