Years ago one of my colleagues encouraged my baking by introducing me to Mary Berry's lemon drizzle tray bake.
It's so good that my brother always makes a special request for it! Every time I make it, I test it (obviously) and test it again (obviously) and it's never inedible! (Obviously! it's Mary's!)
Actually, there was this one time...
My daughter and her boyfriend came home late so popped a pizza and some garlic bread in the oven as a quick tea. As it was cooking the room started to smell like burnt garlic so the food was checked but nothing was burnt so all was well.
That was until the next day, baking day, lovely lemon drizzle day!
The cake was in the oven, everywhere was clean and tidy awaiting the arrival of my brother. Suddenly a waft of garlicky smelling smoke drifted around the room, I dashed to open the windows and dared to open the oven, and there beneath my lovingly made lemon drizzle cake was a browning, bubbling puddle of last nights garlic butter!
The boyfriend had seemingly dismissed oven trays and rustically put their pizza and garlic bread on the oven racks...you get the picture.
Eventually, the red-faced, growling me calmed down and I did forgive him (oven trays are now used regularly!)
So if anyone out there is feeling adventurous and fancies trying garlic infused lemon drizzle cake, I'm glad to have helped, though I thoroughly recommend you keep your oven clean and stick with the original recipe!
Ever accidentally infused anything yourselves?!
