Over the weekend, I had the best of intentions to make a homemade lemon blueberry cake from scratch. I bought everything the recipe called for, I had fresh lemons and had to zest them and squeeze them. Making a home made cake, seems fairly simple. A little flour, add some other ingredients and you should have a nice cake. NOPE! Not for me.
When my cake was baking, I thought it looked odd and when it started to bubble like a volcano, I knew it was wrong. I added baking soda instead of baking powder. WHOOPS! My cake was no longer a cake, it was a blueberry mush pie.
Luckily, I was smart enough to buy a boxed cake and make that. I am glad I have a good sense of humor because if I did not, I would of been in my kitchen crying over this mess.
I have learned that from now on, I will only make boxed cakes. If it doesn't have a maximum of 4 ingredients, I am not making it! I have learned my lesson when trying to become Betty Crocker.
