Since a six layer cake is a bit much for the two of us my bride took the cake to work, setting it up in 'public' area of the lunch room. She seems to think all it needed was to warm up a little more since there was constant stream of 'Oh wow' coming from the lunch room and many people making multiple trips to get 'just a little more cake'. We have a little more here at home for tonight so I'll find out how it is after warming up more.
Gosh, baking may be more enjoyable than cooking.
You're welcome.

I have always know that about baking. Who doesn't like dessert?

Me? I would rather go back for seconds of dinner than have dessert. Don't like sweets much.

Still continuing the French bread odyssey. Delivered 20 loaves to my friend yesterday and learned that 32 have been requested, so I still have a dozen to go to keep up.

Right now numbers 5 and 6 are about to get ready for their final rise. If I pace myself and continue with the rhythm I've established I should get those 12 done today.

Tomorrow I'll do at least that many and, perhaps, a few more on Sunday and Monday because he'll be stopping by on either Monday or Tuesday morning on his way to the university to pick up what is done. I'd like to be able to hand over at least 30 then.

The race will end on Thanksgiving.

Howdy do bakers!
I'm surprised as you that I'm here, as my oven is used exclusively for savory cooking and have never made a loaf of bread. I love sweets and very rarely bake, but I came across an interesting recipe for your review as I'm crazy about cranberries.

No Crust Cranberry Pie

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Grease one 9 inch pie pan.
Combine the flour, sugar, and salt.
Stir in the cranberries and the walnuts, and toss to coat.
Stir in the butter, beaten eggs, and almond extract. If you are using frozen cranberries, the mixture will be very thick.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Has anyone made this?

cinnamon rolls this morning. Cheated though, some time in the past my wife bought a couple boxes of some Pillsbury 'Hot Rolls' mix, add hot water, egg and butter. Had a variation for the cinnamon rolls. Forgot to add sugar to the mix, oh well. Learned a few things. 1) Kneading dough on a small cutting board is nearly futile and noisy, ended up kneading with one hand and holding the board down with the other. 2) Rolling out dough on the same small cutting board is nearly as futile. 3) Just because you can fit just a little more in the pan doesn't mean you should.
First time working with a yeast dough other than a bread machine, was a good learning experience.
