Ever heard of Herman the German Friendship Cake? My mom made something similar when we were kids so when a work colleague offered me a portion of the 'batter', I said yes please!
Today is Day 1 - transfer the 'batter' into a bowl and cover with a tea towel.
Done. Team GB tea towel no less!
Day 2 tomorrow - stir.
Day 3 to Day 10 -- I will need to look at the 10 day schedule to be sure when to stir and when to add various ingredients but how cool is this!!? I can't wait for Day 9 when I divide it up and give away 3 portions and Day 10 when I can bake a cake with the last portion of 'batter'! Can't decide if I will make a chocolate cake or a lemon drizzle cake....
Stay tuned :)
I can't believe "Hermann" is still doing the rounds (btw. we skip the "the German " part in Germany). Be sure to have a good friend to take over - after 3 or 5 or 7 cakes you won't want to do another one, you will be very much lookign forward to something else...
I love this! I think I will start one here. Thanks for reminding me of another "Mom" thing this morning too!
