Frying Chicken + Buttermilk Pound Cake

No pictures because I’m lazy. But, thermapens are magic for frying chicken.

Followed a recipe off Serious Eats… and magic!

This follows a previous attempt at the same recipe without a thermapen that resulted in delicious chicken… but with throughly blackened (as in inedibly blackened) skin. One day I will buy a deep fryer and make my life easier. And waistline larger.

Also, in an attempt not to lose all the recipes…

Buttermilk Pound Cake of Buttery Goodness — original version & source
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter – try with slightly less next time. maybe 14tbsp?
3 cups white sugar – did 2.5 because that’s how i roll
6 eggs
1 teaspoon lemon extract omitted because lazy and did not have
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk

Would make again. Fantastic with olallieberry ice cream.
