Did you know it’s National Donut Day? I don’t see why these things are always announced on the day of. Give me a weeks notice to plan to make donuts, or to plan my day around a trip to a donut shop. Don’t leave me a day late and a donut short. I think I need to make a food of the day calendar that also has a weekly plan ahead section. Never get caught by surprise on pi day, or donut day, or National Rotisserie Chicken Day (tomorrow). Don’t steal this idea, I got laid off yesterday, and I might turn this idea into some sort of money making scheme. The good news is, I have plenty of time for baking now.
Just like last year, I donated a coffee cake to the school fundraiser. I gave these two options: Blueberry Coffee Cake and Aunt Patty’s Coffee Cake. The bad news is that the winner said they wanted Aunt Patty’s Coffee cake, and as you know the last time I made it… Oh wait, you don’t know because it turned out so badly I decided not to photograph it or blog about it. Long story short, I did a practice run today, and it turned out beautifully. I took it out of the oven at 10:30 and 2 hours later I was able to photograph all that remains. I’m not sure it’s worth $1000 or whatever the bidding got up to. (More like $25 I am sure.) But everyone in my house said it’s worth at least $50 so I think I am all set to bake the winners a coffee cake.
