does your gf ever get weirded out by your love for amber? not judging, just curious. promise.
She’s not weirded out, she’s just disgusted. She finds Amber hideous and thinks that if I find Amber attractive, then *she* must be ugly too…… which is silly, because my girlfriend is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GAL IN THE WORLD! LOOK AT HER!
I hated pickles. They were disgusting and ruined any burger experience for me.
Well, one day I asked for a happy meal with no pickles.
I expressed this so strongly, that when I received my cheeseburger with pickles, my eight year old mind knew instantly: sabotage.
So I walked up to the counter politely and asked for a new one and the cashier told me “too bad you brat”.
Well, she wanted a brat and I would not disappoint.
In an ode to my favorite movie scene I threw the cheeseburger behind the counter screeching “I SAID NO PICKLES! ”
I was watching gbbo with some friends and they did angel food cake and I was just appalled. by everyone. even mary berry.
it was the technical, they were baking mary’s recipe. which, one: angel food cake is not actually that hard if you don’t wreck the eggs. so I was astonished that everyone was so confused. and that they managed to do it so badly. and, two: this is not a cake to frost. mary’s recipe had them frost it. just. why.
and all of their cakes were way too browned and flat and sad looking. so for my own peace of mind, I had to put forth my aunt’s angel food cake recipe, which she taught to me, and is amazing. (certainly better than any of them could turn out, anyway)
so without further food-bloggering, I present a superior angel food cake recipe:
12 egg whites 1 ½ tsp cream of tartar ¼ tsp salt 1 ½ c + 2 tbsp sugar 1 c cake flour 1 ½ tsp vanilla
PREHEAT OVEN TO 375*F
mix together ¾ cup + 2 tbsp sugar, and flour. set aside.
mix egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt. add remaining ¾ c of sugar. mix until thick, & until it can form a peak
fold in vanilla
fold in sugar/flour mixture.
put into cake pan.
(DO NOT spray the pan)
take knife and criss cross cut into batter to get air bubbles out & level batter
bake for 30 min or until when you touch white part between brown top your finger comes off clean
hang upside down on glass bottle until cool
DO NOT top with lemon curd, mary berry, or icing or anything else. do not serve upside down?? that’s just absurd and smushes the brown crackly? I can’t believe this has to be said?
just serve with maybe some sliced fruit and whipped cream? or ice cream? that’s reasonable. or just pull off chunks featuring the extra delicious brown top and eat out of hand, like I do.
