I'm not very good/willing at following specific instructions or recipes. I never stopped being a teenager in that stubborn way I guess. So when something turns out despite my "throw it all in" approach, I'm quite pleased. It means it's trustworthy, hardy, robust and doesn't need "precious"/"tred carefully" treatment.
According to my middle child, this is my best cake EVER. He's a rebel too. Maybe he can taste rebellion in the mix:-)
if you want to bake it like I bake it, add "or whatever" after each instruction/ingredient amount.
