I think I’m going to let the pictures do the talking for this post. I’m not feeling terribly talkative tonight.
For my pan, because I hate springform, don’t have a silicone pan of the appropriate size to use as a leak guard, and know from experience that my foil wrapping techniques leave something to be desired, I used a regular 3″ tall 9″ round cake pan. With lots of parchment and some shortening, I’ve never had one stick.
I know the yolks are a little small, but aren’t these eggs gorgeous? They’re fresh from my aunt’s hens. I count myself lucky.
The next day, after chilling overnight…
Yes, I know that’s way too much bourbon. I misread and almost put in twice as much as the variation called for. Luckily I realized my mistake before it was mixed in and I was able to pour some of it off.
I suppose I should add our thoughts on the cake, at the very least. Jay really dislikes pumpkin and really doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth. He had seconds of this cake today, without any prodding. I think that’s all I need to say.
