Waste Not! Want Not!

In today’s world as everything is getting so expensive, those of us who want to “follow our passion,” need to find ways to cut cost where we can.  Eating low carb is not cheap!

As I was baking my Cinnamon Chocolate cake this morning, I noticed that I have started to use more wax paper instead of parchment.  I also found myself using the two pieces of wax paper to line my pans to sift my dry ingredients on.  After sifting my flour onto one piece, I place the sifter on the other and pour my measured flour into it.   Having the measured flour in the sifter, I add the other dry ingredients except the sugar.  The next step is to sift all the ingredients together, then place them in a mixing bowl.

Now the two pieces of waxed paper are free to be used to line my pans, and my counter is clean.  🙂

I know it is a little thing, but sometimes all the “little” things add up to a big bill.

Two more things-

1) I also noticed this morning that I always use extra large eggs.  Having done this for years I didn’t even think about it when I wrote my recipes.  I will add this note to the recipe e-book  “baking tips.”

I do apologize for the oversight.

2)  With the info about leavening agent I posted, I add another 1/2 tsp of baking powder to the recipe.  My previous layers have turned out just fine, but we will see what happens.

I just took them out of the oven.  They  both are slightly over 1 1/2 inches high, so don’t be afraid to add a bit more.  I have updated the recipes in my e-book, and included the egg info as well.

PS- I am filling this cake with bananas and whipped cream.  Yummm!

I know – a few more carbs, but who’s counting?
