Sending Kara out on a quest for those ingredients that I lacked in the house (which amounted to most everything ^_~), I got everything ready. Sadly, due to time constraints, I wasn't able to get the cakes done that day like I'd wanted, but I did get onto them first thing this morning.
|Since my jars of honey had crystallized,|
I started by heating them thoroughly in a
water bath to return the honey granules
|Getting all my tools together.|
|All the dry ingredients whisked together.|
|Only the best will do for a Hobbit's cake,|
12 yr old Glenfiddich Whiskey to warm the
soul after a hard day's toil.
|A cupful of honey, all ready to go.|
|Into the molds.|
|And into the oven|
|The mini-loaves finished first.|
|The cakes came out so moist|
that the large one kind of exploded
on me while I was taking it out of the mold.
And now comes the really good part ... the eating!
