Sugar rots your brain

Whoops!  I’m not sure if it was old age or the sugar rush of licking the icing bowl for breakfast, but I inadvertently left the sugar out of Wednesday’s birthday cake recipe. Many thanks to my mother-in-law who discovered the error as she was part-way through making the cake yesterday. I’ve now updated the recipe with the correct amount – it’s a teeth-aching 1 1/2 cups of caster sugar. Making this kind of error when you publish a recipe in the newspaper brings lots of angry people out of the woodwork so I can only hope the kinder, gentler folks of blogland will forgive me for the mistake.

It’s a beautiful sunny Sunday here and I’m experimenting with recipes for an upcoming issue of Frankie. Hope all is well in your corner of the world x

    Lol. That happened to me a couple of years ago – I left the flour out of a recipe, and got an email earlier this year from a careful reader to inform me so!
