It just sounds like summer, doesn’t it! Alas, the recipe as printed in the local newsletter annarbor.com was incorrect. I fixed it and made so many changes that I’m posting my own version here.
Luscious Strawberry Summer Cake
This cake started out originally from smittenkitchen.com. A lovely website! I forgot to take a picture … Oh well, guess I’ll just have to make another one.
We used to go to the pool almost every day in the summer. It took nearly an hour by bus.
I remember being 5 and wanting to go swimming in the big pool. But you had to take lessons and be THIS tall. And you couldn’t take lessons until you were 6.
Next summer I was six, but I was only This tall. No lessons for me. So I told me mother I was going to the kiddie pool but went to the big pool area instead. I watched all the people swimming. I picked out someone who looked like they knew what they were doing. Then I got in the water and did what they did. After a few tries I was doing okay.
I told my mom, and showed her.She wasn’t upset (that I recall). But she did come and watch over me in the big pool from then on.
Better to ask forgiveness than permission?
We love French Toast. But it’s always annoying that the first slices are too eggy and the latter ones not eggy enough with too much seasoning.
SOLUTION: Pour your dipping solution into a sided cookie pan — what we used to call a jelly roll pan will holds lots of slices. Place the bread in a single layer
Turn your oven onto it’s lowest setting and put your plates in to heat.
Flip the slices so they can soak on the other side. Heat your frying pan or griddle.
Fry on medium for about 3 minutes per side.
Put the finished toast onto your plate(s) and return to oven.
Finish frying slices.
Serve, slathering with as much butter and maple syrup as you like!
I love layered warmth when I sleep. I heap on the Bothy blanket we got at St. Andrews in Scotland, the afghan my mother made in the 30’s and the bedspread my mother and grandmother made in the mid 30’s.
They’re not heavy, they’re my history.
