I did it!
I made both a Bacon Cake & the Frog Dish perfectly!
At least I’m hoping the bacon cake is perfect when we eat it tomorrow at a friend’s place for Oktoberfest. It’s absolutely the most perfect looking thing I have seen in a long time. Strange, I know.
I’m so ridiculously proud at how they both turned out. I am especially pleased at the fact I finally got the stupid yorkshire pudding technique down for the Toad in the Hole recipe. I managed to make yorkshire puddings perfectly my first time a few years back when I made a roast beef for the first time, but have failed everytime since then. I finally stuck with it today and it came out beautifully. I think I will definitely omit the rosemary when we make the Frog Dish again in the future. I had omitted it the first time because I didn’t have any, but I found it too overpowering tonight.
