Recipe says gas 1 for 4.5 hours. It's NOT FUCKING COOKED (skewer doesn't come out clean) and it's been in for nearly 7 hours now!Oh its going to taste like fucking cat litter isn't it
Here is how to rescue situation.Take out, pour over 1/3 tablespoon of brandy.Set alight.Pour rest of brandy into bucket.Drink.Go M&S tomorrow. Buy new cake.Problem solved.
<sob>I will NOT buy a cake. I will not. I'm going to make everybody eat it anyway
My friend once made a cake that took about 6 hours to cook so I'd hang in there. Unfortunately for her she was making it for a work thing and didn't get it in the oven until about 9pm. So you're a step ahead.It has to cook eventually, no?
I would keep going with it.....its pretty hard to screw up a xmas cake and TBH gas mark 1 is a very low setting for such a dense cake. Stick with it.......
drop a brandy anyway wouldn't hurt...?
I think its fine now
I'll drink to that! <<hic>>
