What can I do with this?

I made a sponge and forgot to add baking powder - so made it with plain flour effectively. It didn't rise (unsurprisingly) but it tasted okay.

It's in the freezer and I'm trying to work out what to do with it. I was thinking it might work in a trifle or tiramisu (except I put lemon zest in) or something similar. I hate to waste it. It was four eggs!

Any ideas clever baking types?

I was going to say trifle... or maybe put a cheesecake type mix on top?

Either would work. For tiramisu I put lemon zest in the mascarpone so flavour wise you’re fine

Lemon in trifle would be fine too

Ooh thanks. I do love tiramisu so that's good to know. I was sort of thinking lemon/coffee hmm

And a cheesecake mix might be nice too yes, good idea.

Ah good to know I could do those things - or trifle - without anyone throwing up their hands in horror the Victoria biscuit would have been entirely horrifying though so good job that didn't come to pass

My DM would just chuck some booze on it and have with fruit and ice cream 😁

Yeah. That's a trifle right grin

Oh ice cream. Right. Hmmmm <eyes Christmas pudding vodka and thinks about chocolate Ben and Jerry's>

Lol it’s the instant pudding route

Could you do a limoncello tiramisu type thing? I once kept a failed cake in the freezer for 3 years - I always meant to make a trifle but never had an occasion to make one for!

Gosh. I thought I had a shit cake but it turns out I have an ideal base for all sorts. grin

<goes off to Google limoncello tiramisu. Gets much fatter>

It was going to be a sandwich too so I have two of the buggers blush

Occasion? Does breakfast not count? grin

Hmmmm. Breakfast boozy cake and ice cream.

I could blow the kids' minds...
