Yes, I baked a cake from scratch. While the oven was hot from our supper pizza and the roasting of excess eggplants, I decided to make the chocolate cake I wrote about in my August 28 blogpost. (shhhh -- tomato soup and Greek yoghurt/ buttermilk in the ingredients.)
It was super simple to do "scratch," and the batter did not smell bad. I licked the batters and bowl, and the finished cake is yummy! We munched on it even before adding an icing.
