Who knew that American flour is different from British flour?! I couldn't understand why my cakes here are not as light and airy as my cakes in the UK :-(. So I have resorted to cake mix. You know, those packets that have everything in them except egg and oil.
To my mind this is cheating. On a grand scale. No weighing and beating and sieving. Just splosh and stir and bake. However, it was easy to choose which box to buy:
I'm waiting now to take said mixture out of the oven.....
All I can say is, "Oh dear," and make some icing.
I miss my UK kitchen. And my sons. And my cat. Not in that order.
