Weekend cooking: Literary Baking

Something exciting happened so I had to interrupt my new weekend cooking veggie series to show you something else. You might call me insane, at least my husband has done just that. He said – and I quote – “you are like one of those nutcase women who see the face of Jesus Christ in a sponge cake”, but, naturally, I don’t agree.

 The Original Grinch

Last week I baked banana bread again for a kindergarten party and when the cake came out of the oven I noticed this little piece of dough sticking out of the cake. Imagine my surprise when I took a closer look and discovered that it was The Grinch! I recognized him immediately. I got the book and found the corresponding image and there was my proof.

My GrinchThe mirrored Grinch

Once I had mirrored the Grinch even John recognized him (it took some encouragement, though).

Next time you bake something and a little bit of dough escaped its mold, don’t snap it off and throw it away carelessly! It might be a hidden treasure.
