Herman the friendship cake
I was never a fan of chain letters especially those that asked you to send a favourite recipe to 10 other people, the object being that you in turn would receive new recipes from them. It never happened and I certainly wouldn't take part in any chain which involved money as the only winner was the person who started the chain in the first place!
However what I would describe as the food version of the chain letter - Herman the Friendship Cake is well followed and passed on for the right reasons and a lot more satisfactory.
The White-ish Glug.....beginnings of Herman...
A month or two ago a friend gave me a jar of white 'glug' - the beginnings of a German Friendship cake. I followed the instructions and made my cake which was enjoyed by the whole family then I passed the starter mixture on to 2 friends and froze some, this is the batch I am starting off today.
I don't intend going into detail about the process in this blog but for those unfamiliar with 'Herman' there is a mass of information about it on Google follow the link below:
Follow my blog over the next few weeks and see the end 'Herman' once it has been baked.
Next week I will be talking about Ginger Beer Plants!!
