You know that feeling when you wake up in the middle of the night and realize that you forgot to do something very very important? Your heart races, you might break out in a cold sweat, your mind swirls and dives and the repercussions of that messed up something important feel like a deep black hole. Well that is how I’ve been feeling since we discovered yesterday that the yellow cake recipe in Baker’s Notes v.2 Sweet has a huge mistake. Instead of 1/2 pound (1 cup) of butter it should be 1/2 cup (1/4 pound) of butter. Arggg. I won’t complicate this with all stories and foilbles about why it took until now to figure this out …..something so simple…. but please let me say we are very very sorry for anyone that has made the recipe and it didn’t turn out.
In an attempt to set it right we’re printing postcards with the correct recipe (along with a pretty picture) that should be ready next week. They’ll be available at the bakery and for those not here in Maine, if you’re interested, please email me a (hello -at-bakersnotes.com) your address and I’ll get one out to you. I’m also going to post a special Scratch recipe here this weekend (it will work I promise!) as a peace offering. And in an attempt to find some humor in this let me know about your experience with the bad recipe and we can swap stories, who knows it might be fun. In the meantime if you have a copy of Sweet please change the recipe, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
