Though I've been doing some baking lately, mostly cookie, I was itching to try something new. I'd pinned a recipe for Cinnamon Loaf Cake and, once I calculated the calories, decided to make it.
My first hurdle was self-rising flour: I had none. I found the baking powder/flour substitution online and proceeded with the rest of the recipe. Instead of creamer, I used skim milk and 1.5 tsp of vanilla.
The cake smelled delicious while baking. I love making the house smell good! But when I took the cake out of the oven, it was flat....as in an inch thick. Obviously, my sub for self-rising flour did not work. Ack!
But the cake tasted wonderful! It was so wonderful that I bought the right flour at the store so I can attempt to make it again - the right way. It's perfect for drinking with coffee or tea. Yum!
