July will see the second Great Bloggers Bake-off (18/19th). This year it’s a massive picnic. So in the spirit of things here is this weeks baking submission from Yorkshire. Oh it’s a doozie….

These are supposed to be donuts.

As son rather harshly pointed out.

Looks nothing like any donut I’ve ever seen…”

“More life a UFO”

“Your not going to get much Jam in that one…”

Well I think I’ve set the bar very high on the donut front.

Remember the Bake-off is for everyone, including those like me who can’t bake. It’s not often we get a chance to show off our complete incompetence in the kitchen. Lets embrace our inner baking muppet. Let’s have a laugh and give everyone a giggle as well. You know it makes sense.

So from now until the big weekend I am going to do at least one bit of baking each week. No practice runs. Photograph the disaster.

Remember to send in your baking creations (you can start early) to Mel so that they can be featured in the Great Bake-off.

  1. Just own it and name them UFOs. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I actually am quite good at baking, but: a few years after moving to my Stepford Wives neighborhood, I attended what was advertised as a Cookie Exchange. Everyone brought a few dozen cookies and would then go back home with a variety from exchanging.
    I showed up with a cookie sheet of my offering; they were the most palatable dozen or two after the rest broke or burned or whatnot. The others’ cookies looked like a magazine photo; plus, the ladies all produced plates and tiers and lace doilies and china teacups to display theirs on.
    At the time, I felt out of place and resolved to make something fancier next time. If I were to attend today, however, I think I’d show up with a store-bought package and dump it in a styrofoam bowl. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Wait, there’s a bloggers bake-off? Color me intrigued. ๐Ÿ™‚ They don’t look bad unless you KNOW they’re supposed to be donuts. Rebrand to Saucer Cakes as Pensitivity101 suggested and you’re good to go ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I thought they looked really good actually. Look donuts are tricky. I mind the day I bought this bake your own in the chip pan pack. Yeah. And I thought ‘ What a great idea. I will surprise my mum for when she comes in from her work.’ And let me tell you when she came home to find her chip pan on fire in the middle of the side lawn she was surprised. She was also incandescent. Je rests mah valise on the subject of donuts. Indeed Je need no parlez on the subject of donuts.

  4. My first thought was UFO as well. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I think they’d sell like hot cakes. They serve up easy as well. Just a toss through the air to the saucer. Hey, forget the saucer. They are the sacuer. ๐Ÿ˜„

      1. Ice cream is definitely a tricky one. ๐Ÿ˜• I’m imagining frosty ice cream balls flying through the air and a food fight breaking loose. ๐Ÿ˜„

  5. I ordered a nee toaster oven last night (paid waaay too much extra to get the pretty red one!), so I’m putting it in my calendar and will make something (cheesecake or quiche) on the 18th!!

      1. Lol… well still curious if the taste was donutโ€™y … what is your skill level? Looks I donโ€™t care about… but how was the taste?


  7. Um … don’t donuts usually have a hole in the middle? ๐Ÿฉ Just askin’ … That said, they actually look quite delicious and I’m thinking that served with a small ramekin of warm maple syrup in which to dip them, they might yet become a new ‘to die for’ treat! ๐Ÿ˜‹
