Day Seven
Well Herman I think you are really bubbly this morning even though the photographer(DH) can't see any difference.

Keep up the good work,
Goodnight Herman :-*

Herman smells different today as well JD,he's got a "sour" fragrance about him.
DH can't believe this posting has had 800+ hits :o :o

I remember making one of these years ago. The actual cake in the end wasn't very nice, but this one looks to be a different recipe.
I'll start tomorrow.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

I agree re the old recipe that was round for ages MJ. I've decided I'm taking this one to Monkey Mia once I make it. After a while up there with no cake the morning tea gatherers will eat anything. :D :D :D

When are you off cookie? I'd love to go up north in winter, but that's our busy time. Once seeding looks like starting, I won't see muhc of DH until September!

Wow, I just picked up that thread. I had heard about bread starters but not cakes. I can't wait to see it after it's baked
