Before I made 'buns' which I can do with very little effort these days, I decided to test out a carrot cake recipe I have found that I love for 2 reasons;
Firstly, these is no requirement for passion fruit, sultanas, raisins, or walnuts.
Secondly, after careful consideration to quantities, of flour, sugar, eggs, and spices, it declares a requirement for 3 large Carrots.
How large is a large Carrot?
A friend helped and pointed out that it was obviously bigger than a small carrot, which obviously is helpful (ish) if you know the size of a small carrot. Anyone who states at this point that it's smaller than a large one, doesn't get a piece of cake!
Anyhow, having muddled my way through carrot quantities I proceeded to scrape/ pour the mixture into a baking tin, and found to my horror that the base of my large mixing bowl has a hole in it! How am I supposed to make the quantity of buns required for my daughter now, non of the others are big enough, for the substantial quantities that are usually required.
I think I'll go and knead my bread dough some more while I consider my options carefully, and work out which scenario will get less complaints
