Here are the peaches:
and here is the announcement:
My attempt at Peach Cupcakes was an EPIC FAIL.
(There is another announcement coming, but bear with me for the moment, k?)
I don't even understand what went so wrong with this cupcake.
I split the recipe in half, but I do that all the time so I don't blame that. I even rechecked my maths when things went south. I cross-checked the recipe on a couple of different blogs to make sure all the measurements agreed. They did.
But I knew something was not right when my batter was looking more peach soup than batter-with-peaches-folded-in.
Still I had faith... until I pulled those suckers out of the oven.
They were kind of bubbly and very much not cake.
Nevertheless, I dressed homegirl up like a true Southern Lady, and she really doesn't look half bad.
As far as taste goes, the verdict is still out for me. What I seem to have made is more of an eggy custard than a cake. Is it tasty? It is... if you like peach custards. However, a true cupcake, it is not. I would love to hear from anyone who has successfully made this cupcake in the form that God intended.
Now... for the real announcement...
I'm moving again.
I've accepted a position teaching writing at a school in Georgia, y'all.
(I want to leave the "y'all" for all the Southern reasons, but I shuddered a bit just typing it. If you ever notice the dreaded "y'all" showing up in my normal speech, please feel free to slap me. Even in public.)
So that's that. I'm moving very soon so there may or may not be posts happening over the next few weeks. But know that when I do get settled, I'll continue to bring you all the ridiculousness you've come to expect from this blog, but this time the posts will just come to you from Georgia.
And you better believe I'll be hunting down Paula Deen to guest blog.
