Meet a Minion Monday!

The minion we’re meeting this Monday is the one and only… Fifi of the Lake, my neighbor!

JK: Hi Fifi.
Fifi: Hi Fihi.
JK: Are you hungry?
Fifi: I just wanted y’all to eat!
JK: How are you doing today?
Fifi: I’m not that afraid of hating on. It’s very redneck or ghetto, I don’t know what to call it. I want to slap you.
[whips out hair]
Fifi: Is that Quaker oats?
JK: Yes.
JK: Thanks for the interview, Fifi!
Fifi: There will be no next time!

If at first you don’t succeed…

Hello! We’re just popping in to give you the Strawberry Cake II recipe. Can’t chatĀ for long, finals are coming up! Cats won’t let me study.

1 c sugar
1/2 c (1 stick) butter
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla or lemon (we’re doing lemon)

Cream together the sugar and butter, then beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla/lemon. Combine:

1 1/2 c flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder

Stir it in. Then mix in:

3/4 c pureed berries
1/4 c milk or orange juice

350 degrees, 1 9 inch layer, 30-40 minutes.


Edit 12/12: Turned out dreadful. Cats turned up noses at it. Too much strawberry, I think. Try reducing the berry/juice mixture, or maybe adding half cup more flour. Sigh. We’re hanging up our aprons… for now.
