I seriously need some cake. I might have to dig up my chocolate emergency cake recipe for the microwave.

Yes, I know that sounds nasty, but it'll do in a pinch especially with some caramel drizzled on it. I thought about making cookies, but I'll just eat them ALL!!!

Baba au rhum is in that big old brioche family tree that includes babkas, kugelhopf, and other similar festive breads. It's a yeast-raised "leaner" brioche that gets doused in rum syrup.*


There's also savarin au rhum which is baked in a different mold:

Smile Emergency Cake for Springy!




Quote:
Emergency Chocolate Cake

2 Tbs cake flour (or regular...)
2 Tbs sugar
2 rounded tsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 Tbs milk
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp vanilla

Coat the inside of a mug with nonstick cooking spray. Put all ingredients in mug and stir with a fork until smooth. You can also stir in chocolate chips, nuts or anything else your heart desires. Microwave for 1 minute. Allow to cool a little before eating! If you're feeling crazy you could top it with a spoonful of peanut butter (which melts delectably on the warm cake) or maybe some ice cream. The possibilities are endless, really.
I've never made this so I can't vouch for it. Looks simple enough.

It's OK. You were right.

Okay. I'm still sorry, though. My Dad was bonkers sometimes, and it was....draining.

Saria, you just knew about my love affair with brioche, didn't you? That's why you posted sexy pictures.

You're a rogue.

Dear mercy, now I want a popover (or 3) with butter and strawberry jam (I typo'd that HAM, HA! gross).

That's pretty similar to my recipe, MissP! The peanut butter idea is brilliant! Yep, I'm gonna have me some emergency burfday cake tonight! TY for the link.

You're welcome. Since it is your birthday you can also top it with a scoop of ice cream! Let us know how it turns out.

Ninja:


I'm ok. Japan is a (relatively) safe place, although I think their fascination with foreigners can sometimes be borderline nuts.


I leave at the end of July! and while I look forward to it, I still haven't figured out what my next step will be.

I didn't mean to worry you. Thanks for your concern, it means a lot.

I swear this guy on Wheel of Fortune is saying "I'd like to buy a Volvo" instead of vowel.

And please don't point it out, I'm well aware how sad it is that I'm even watching.

Sorry ninja, but here's another:


Kayb, I'm not a huge fan of musicals but I love that movie and its soundtrack!

Springy, enjoy your cake!

I love musicals! It all started when I watched "Chicago back in '02? (question sign cause I'm not too sure what year it was released). I always text my friends to tell them what song I'm singing today, but man, did I sleep on "Singing in the Rain." I am love with Gene Kelly (even if he was a tyrant while filming that movie), and I am solidly impressed with Donald O'Conner after reading that he had to rest for three days after doing "Make 'em laugh;" and then he had to do it a second time. That movie is genius, it has me thinking I want to go home and teach film.

I could weep! I'm weeping with longing! You're a cruel mistress, Madam.

Kayb, good. I feel like you get harassed a bit there.

springy, I go to a movie every year on my birthday. Nothing wrong with W!O!F! (Though I prefer Jeopardy.)

I love musicals, too, though I prefer Fred Astaire's light footed grace to Gene Kelly's athleticism.

I still want to be one of Miss Adelaide's Goldwyn Girls. Screw this writing job! I want to bare some leg.

My nightly routine is to have dinner ready promptly at 7pm so I can eat and watch Jeopardy. Nothing attractive about yelling out an answer with food hanging out of your mouth, but it sure is fun!

I'm learning this quickly. Although there are lots of Americans (of all colors) where I am, Japanese people seem to be very interested (yes, borderline nuts) in anyone who isn't Japanese. And don't get me started on their fascination with my child...downright creepy at times.

Uh-uh, ninja. None of that wishy-washy, "Oh, I can see both sides!" stuff. YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE!

I'm with you on that one! I hate pie. I really, really do.
But cake? Om nom nom - yes please!
