This is ALL very good, cute, rewarding and fulfilling BUT I have a very basic, but pivotal, question.
Did Ian Cummings, the Season 6 “Great British Bake Off” also ran, use ANY EGGS in baking this cake?
I suspect he did.
Why? I am trying to work out whether the Dalai Lama STILL eats eggs.
Many Buddhists eat eggs.
The Dalai Lama USED to eat meat. He is said to have become a vegetarian late in life. But some vegetarians eat eggs. Plus today you can get unfertilized eggs.
I have know strict Hindus that would NOT eat eggs eat fancy puddings that my adoptive mother made and they contained dozens of eggs. I actually confronted her on this. This Indian, a dear friend of the family, had seconds and then thirds of my adoptive mother’s famous ‘Watalappam‘ (a extremely rich cream caramel) — that she would cook mainly for me — one night in Paris. I knew that she had used OVER a dozen eggs preparing it. So this elderly, very gentle gentleman ingested a ton of eggs. He had to have known. My mother said nothing. But this was kosher. Hindus that refused to eat eggs would eat things that contained eggs. Strange?
So I am curious. What do YOU think?
