Re: Today I Made:

Thank you, I love that idea; it seems to me it would also stop it from doming and having to cut so much off. I have had some luck with wet towel strips around the pans but this sounds much simpler. Any advice on not having the cake taste stale if I have to freeze the iced cake to set the glaze? I us...

Might I throw pumpkin seeds into the mix for texture? I love me some pumpkin seeds.

The official first dish I made in my new oven: Malva pudding for dessert at a braai on the weekend.

Traditional South African baked pudding, soaked in a buttery sugary syrup/sauce as soon as it comes out of the oven. Slightly creamy, slightly caramelly, comforting and heavenly.

It's one of those dishes that you can add and leave out whatever suits your tastes. As with many South African specialities its roots are based in necessity, so beans were a cheap and nutritious addition but I also prefer it without.
