:nerves: 2012 Christmas cake
Okay, today i'm baking a cake, not any old cake either and the worst part of this is that i've never baked a cake before.
I'm attempting a Christmas cake bassed on a Jamie Oliver recipe.
I soaked the fruit over saturday and sunday night with Captain Morgans Spiced and this morning made the cake mix that has just gone in the oven at 09:10...
Had a scary moment after mixing the butter and suger in that when i added the eggs it looked lumpy so i whisked like a loon and it still looked the same. Haven't a clue if it was supposed to look like that or not so i pressed on regardless. Adding the flour and fruit after made the mix alot better, but i'm worried .
Now i have 2 1/2 hr wait until i check it with a skewer to see if its cooked, if not bake in for 20 min stints till it is.
Hope this works...
