Okay. Prepare yourself. I made the most punny cake ever. Ever.
Ready? Remember, I warned you!
(That's Cake Phone!)
Get it? Today, June 29, 2007 is the launch of Apple's much anticipated iPhone!
Oh great. I hear the moans already. Sure...I'll just stick to baking. (You really missed out. I tried to make an apple pie last night but my crust looked AWFUL so I abandoned those plans...but then it would be: Apple (p)i(e)-Phone. Ha ha ha.
Fine. I'll talk about the baking item. First, I woke up at 4:30 am for this baby! This Apple Cake is from "American Classics" by the editors of Cook's Illustrated (page 342) and involves putting a layer of sugar on bottom of the Bundt pan and a bunch of granny smith apples. Then, a light batter is plopped on top of the apples. The sugar caramelizes (just a bit) and, according to the food chemistry specialists at Cook's Illustrated, the Bundt cake allows it to cook up nicely because there can't be a soggy middle. (Again, the wonder of the Bundt pan never ceases to amaze me!)
Next up: Tomorrow, I'm going to the Hollywood Bowl's SOLD OUT Sound of Music Sing-a-Long!!! Not only do I know the lyrics, I can pretty much recite the dialogue. Of course, I'm working on a food-related costume and pic-a-nic meal. Stay tuned!
