It started innocently enough. set the butter on the counter to get to room temperature, get all the ingredients ready, and the utensils lined up, Make sure your recipe is handy and the oven is preheating. Once the butter is ready, tump it out of the wrapper and into the wet ingredients bowl.
Use a wrapper from the butter to butter the pan. Flour the pan, shake out the excess. Start creaming the butter. Insert the sound of metal grinding and the additional sound of a motor bogging down with strain. The hand mixer had sung its last song, had its last hurrah! No way to hand mix this pound cake recipe! It definitely needed a mixer. Yet, there was no mixer available.
Important to note that this day was predetermined ‘Nobody Leaves the House Day!’ But, what on earth would I do with all this mess?
Never Fear! Batman lives here! He heard the grinding sounds in the kitchen from where he was in the family room. He quickly rose t the occasion! After first checking out the mixer to insure it was indeed dead, he tossed it into the trash and got his DRILL! Put the beater in it and viola!
Once the cake batter was all done except the egg whites, he remembered a wire whisk attachment we had once had for the mixer. I hunted it up, he was able to insert it into the drill and it was PERFECT.
Time for another new mixer! I can’t even imagine how many mixers I have burned up in my life time, but I never in a million years imagined Batman coming to the rescue with his drill! He’s truly the best! Always my hero!
Oh, yeah, the cake? Awesome! 😀
Happy Sunday, Y’all!
