Most of the Christmas candy at home, the rest at work. It takes the fun out of Christmas baking when it has to be done in mass supply.

FAIL!! Ended up having more of a cake texture than I wanted, oh well. Biggest problem was the salt. I used the same salt I use in bread, sea salt crystals, which didn't break down at all. Had salt crystal crunchies through out the cake. But the taste was good.

I only use table salt in baked goods. Kosher salt and others are for savory dishes.

Ah, I knew that different salts would behave differently but obviously had forgotten.
Thanks
