Ten minutes later its still not ready and all "raw" in the middle. Ive now given it 15 more minutes in the oven but I still cant smell it. This kind of worries me, How can it possibly taste when it doesnt smell? Probably not much. All I can do is to give it a try.
The flavours of the cake are very timid and mild. At first hand, not even noticable. The cake is a big dissapointment. During the second bite I start to taste something. A microtouch of sweetness. And with that came more. However it required a deep amount of concentration to taste its full body of flavours, or lack of them, some sweetness here, a slight hint of fig. Figtouched topnotes meets earthlike bottoms. The syrup has made the corners and the back of the cake quite fudgy, almost like butterscotch. This is the main reason why the cake is edible. Actually its quite nice, in a shy kind of way.
