This is the first cake of Rose's I have made without one mistake.
It was a complete and utter flop.
I have read and re-read the recipe trying to figure out what went wrong. I followed the recipe exactly and did not leave out any ingredients. It is dense and rubbery; easily used for shoe inserts. Lisa Douglas' "hotscakes" on Green Acres comes to mind. You know the ones, used to repair Oliver's engine head gasket or for roof shingles.
Yes, really, my golden lovely cake is Flubber, only it doesn't bounce. Nor make my car fly.
That's it-back to Trader Joes for more sliced almonds. Stay tuned, or not, for Catalan Salt Pinch Cake Round Two.
