Gayle King's fans expressed support as she revealed how her second attempt at baking banana bread turned out.

“It’s no secret I can’t cook,” Gayle King recently admitted while in quarantine. But because of the need to feed herself while in isolation, she’s been relying on her friends to teach her how to prepare some meals.

And now it seems Gayle has been trying to master a recipe for banana bread which she obtained from her friend, Derrick Rutledge.

BANANA BREAD TAKE TWO

The news anchor recently revealed in a series of clips that she was on her second attempt. She shared that she added crushed pineapple to her batter as the recipe called for.

Gayle's first attempt didn't achieve the desired result. Aside from it turning too brown on the outside, the inside was still wet after baking. She shared clips from that experience and how the finished product looked like.

But it seems Gayle has a long way to go when it comes to perfecting her banana bread. The turnout of her second attempt wasn’t as expected too. The finished product appeared with cracks and half-baked.

Gayle’s lack of expertise in the kitchen is compensated by her immense skills when it comes to her career as a journalist and television anchor.

SUPPORT FROM FANS

However, in order to make her feel better, her followers assured her that she had other skills worthy of praise. One commenter on her post wrote,

“It’s ok! You have a wonderful and different skill set!”

Another suggested to put the bread back in the oven, wrap it in tin foil and heat it with a lower temperature. While another follower encouraged her to try again saying, “Third time is a charm!”

WORKING FROM HOME

Gayle’s lack of expertise in the kitchen is compensated by her immense skills when it comes to her career as a journalist and television anchor. That skill hasn’t been cast aside even while she’s confined to her home.

In fact, Gayle has been anchoring from home for “CBS This Morning” since television studios were forced to shut down due to the threat of COVID-19.

Like Gayle, her co-anchors Anthony Mason and Tony Dakoupil have been working from home too. Anthony had a one-week head start after a member of his family exhibited symptoms of the virus.

The decision for “CBS This Morning” to switch to work-from-home mode was further justified by the death of "CBS News" veteran, Maria Mercader. The 54-year-old member of the show’s staff died due to COVID 19 last month.

Maria had been battling cancer and other illnesses for two decades which made her vulnerable to the pandemic. She had been on leave since February.
