Daring Bakers: Yeasted Meringue Cake

I'm posting late because UB and I have had ridiculous months and when we went to make it I had no flour or money so it got postponed, but its here now. And by jove, is it ugly. I don't even particularly like the taste, but I was planning to eat it all because I hate being wasteful, until (mercifully) some raw mince fell on it and rendered it (more) inedible.

Never cooking during an existential crisis again.

If this has somehow enticed you (or you want to see some other, delightful versions!), you can do so here.

The March 2011 Daring Baker’s Challenge was hosted by Ria of Ria’s Collection and Jamie of Life’s a Feast. Ria and Jamie challenged The Daring Bakers to bake a yeasted Meringue Coffee Cake.

Are you sure that raw mince didn't fall from a carefully positioned hand? It does look a little like a mutant mushroom. Never mind. I once made a carrot cake that was inedible. Truly inedible. And choux pastry buns that turned out as cheesy sheets. (In retrospect, I'm sure I left out a step of the recipe that time.)

Shame you don't have a dog. They're excellent for hiding culinary disasters.
