T has been on a Hobbit kick. (They're reading it for the second time with J.)
Last week, T said that my breakfast dish was so good--"Better than Bilbo Baggins' cake!" The next day he said that maybe Bilbo Baggins cake was actually better.
Me: Do you even know what Bilbo Baggins' cake tastes like?
T: Well, no, but I know it's really good.
Me: *Sigh* Well, if you're going to compare my food to someone else's you should at least know what it tastes like. Let's go--we're going to make one.
T: No, Bilbo Baggins made the cake by himself. I help with the dishes.
J: He's right.
A quick search turned up a lot of recipes with English measurements. I settled on this one, making the conversions and replacing the caraway seeds with poppy seeds. It is actually really good--like a hint-of-lemon pound cake. T LOVES it. (Although in his imagination he thought it would be covered with blue icing.)
Our recipe. (Modified from the original HERE.)
It makes a great afternoon snack. Complete with fork and knife pounding (and Dwarf faces).
While singing this song. (That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!)
Isn't this what everyone does in the afternoon? ;)
