Random memory

When I was a little boy, I was baking a cake with my mother. She had me preheat the oven while she was collecting the ingredients and mixing the dough.

When the little light on the oven went out, I thought it was done, and turned off the temperature. By the time the dough was ready, the oven was nearly cold again.

At which point my mother told me that I should have left on the oven even after it had reached the pre-set temperature if we were going to bake a cake in it…
