Rose's Heavenly Cakes, Page : Many Splendored Quick Bread
This is a simple and quick recipe anyone can put together very quickly. Despite it being super quick and easy, everything went wrong for me..Oo..
I don't think i've cooked with zucchini before..so i was wondering if i should remove the skin and the seeds? Anyway, I ended up removing both. When i was about to weigh the walnuts, i found out all 3 packs of walnut that i had turned rancid...and i'm only left with some cashew and pistachio nuts. After much thought..i decided to use cashew nuts..i mean how bad can it turn out right?
I grated the zucchini and carrots...and after grating them equally extra-fine..i realised that i should have grated the carrots medium-fine! At this point i noticed the recipe called for instant oatmeal..mine was the regular oatmeal that has to be cooked...opps..too late..i can't remove it out of the flour..and i didn't have any instant unflavored ones either. *Arrgghh*.. What's wrong with me today!!
Made a slit after baking 15mins and then baked for a further 45mins. The cake ended up looking ok. I was worried it might not cook at all because of the oatmeal.
VERDICT: It tasted more like weird banana cake to me. LOL! I think it was all my doing and most likely had nothing to do with the recipe. The cashew nuts tasted weird in the cake..hahahaha..just doesn't blend in...and i think the regular oatmeal didn't help either when paired with the carrot and zucchini...and it tasted very bland! Super Weird Taste! :P It went straight into the trash. Nobody liked it.
Me: Disqualified in this round.
