icon_redface.gif OOPS!!! I just realized half way through baking my chocolate cake, I left out the vanilla! Dang! I am totally prepared and have enough time to rebake, I just hate to loose the ingredients! Think its possible to save it with a vanilla flavored simple syrup after baking???? UGH I hate when I have brain farts like this!! LOL! Anyone ever do anything like this? Good thing its just a cake for me, not to sale hhaha!

Vanilla gives a nice roundness to the flavor of chocolate cake, but I would not call it essential. Your cake should be fine without it.

How did it taste!!??? I have it brushed and in the freezer now, but I am thinking this might actually not be so bad! Since I am freezing the cake, I now have some extra moisture! Although I think for now on, I am making sure to add it to the batter! icon_redface.gif
