I have a cake in the oven.

It's a "sour cream" streusel cake (though I've been told I can't call it "sour cream" because I used plain yogurt.

I know it's not quite right (I won't bother to tell you why) but I think it will be okay.

I added my own little touch by putting some orange zest in the batter.

The batter was thick. Reminded me a bit of carrot cake or chocolate zucchini cake batter. Not quite THAT thick. But thick.

After it cools it gets a glaze. I'm thinking of serving it with some orange segments.

1. Yum.

I baked a chocolate cake the other day. My wife asked me what I was celebrating.

I told her Thursday.

Your cake sounds delish, MissMillie.

7. Looks perfect to me. Now what was wrong with it?

How was the taste?

8. The taste was great

the hint of orange zest (which was not in the recipe) really added something!

I had a LOT of the streusel filling left over. I was concerned that I messed up the ratios.

Honestly. I think when I make it again, I'll cut the streusel in half. The cake didn't need any more sugar in it.
