Due to a recently-diagnosed peanut allergy in the family, baking has been a little interesting of late. I missed last Sunday's Sweet Melissa recipe (chocolate pie crust), but wasn't about to miss two weeks in a row. I left out the called-for walnuts (why do they insist on processing all nuts in the same plant?) and forged ahead. I don't know what I did wrong, but the outside of the loaf burned and the inside stayed undercooked in places. I have no idea how this happened, but the recipe got raves from everyone else, so please check out the SMS blogroll to see how this cake should have looked and tasted! And thanks to Raeann of Basically, Baby Boots, who chose this week's recipe.
It was worse than it looked. Trust me!
