Baking Challenge

Drizzle Cake

Give your cake a name based on the ingredients and decoration – and tell us about the origin of your recipe.

Lemon poppyseed drizzle cake. Inspired by the GBBS.

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

Since I didn’t have a fluted pan I used two 10" rounds. Unfortunately, one cake was lopsided and also split, so the finished cake is only one layer. However, considering the two sticks of butter in the batter, I think cutting the amount of cake in half will be a blessing in disguise as far as my waistline in concerned.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

There is a hidden layer of cheese in the middle. Just kidding.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
