A great basic sour cream butter cake (from “Short & Sweet” by Dan Lepard)
“There was no conversation that wasn’t about the war. People talked only of themselves, their jobs, their bombs, their version of Don’s new “we”. She tried to remember what they had talked about before the war. She couldn’t. “

Have been in a baking funk for a while. Nothing really seems to turn out.
I managed to burn my sugar caramel :( and splatter the book with a whole lot of rhubarb juice - something to remember this baking endeavour with… :)
On the plus side, the cake itself was nice and velvety and one of the best butter cakes I have had in a while.
Do have a look at the recipe at the host of the week: Erin at When in Doubt… Leave it at 350 (love the name of the blog!)
I should have put in the full amount of salt (I only put in three-quarters of the amount). Otherwise, the bread had a good texture and rose surprisingly quickly.
Please visit the host for the week for the recipe: Dawn at Simply Sweet
