Week 7: I’m not really sure what my brain was thinking

I read the recipe, it said: Be sure to grease the pan well, or the cake won’t come out. I thought, okay, need to grab baking spray, otherwise this won’t come out of the pan and this recipe won’t turn out well. I then immediately proceeded to pour the batter directly into the pan without greasing it.

I’m loosing my mind.

But let me start from the beginning.

I was under the impression that I was going to have a lot of time tonight to try a new recipe, get some homework done, and participate in the conference call I had scheduled.  Somehow that turned into me spending 3 hours in the cluster after work, working on my project due tomorrow. I made it home with time to eat dinner and participate in my conference call (though no lie, I was cooking dinner while the call was going on), but by the time I was finished with both, it was already 9:30pm. Since I guess that I clearly had nothing to do (since ya know, I didn’t have a major project due tomorrow and a take home midterm I needed to finish on top of 5 other things), I would try a new recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. (Note: Yes, I’ve noticed that almost every recipe I’ve tried lately has come from her, but I can’t help it. I have a sweet tooth and her recipes are delicious AND healthy. Give me a break)
She had just posted a super easy recipe this morning, so I figured I could make that and then be on my way to doing homework…I’m not really sure what I was thinking.

Because of my stupidity, I’m not even going to write it up here, just go read it directly from her blog: Skinny Mini Jelly Roll Cake.
So as you read above, I forgot to grease the pan, so I had baked dough and no idea what to do with it. Except I still wanted dessert and that pan of dough wasn’t going to just disappear. My solution? A fake trifle. I started digging out chunks of the cake and laid it in the bottom of a piece of Tupperware. I then put some strawberry jelly on top and then another layer of cake. I think I ended up with three layers of cake total? Luckily, I also had a tub of cream cheese frosting sitting around, so I was able to top of the mini fake trifle with that.

The result?

No setting on instragram can make this look attractive.

Oh my god. So good. So so good.

And now back to my massive amounts of work.

*Sorry, no instagram settings  can make this look attractive. Just focus on how good it is.
