I think I’ve mentioned it already, that one of the greatest joys of baking, is that no matter how many cakes, cookies, and breads you’ve made, there will always be more recipes for baking you haven’t tried or more recipes for baking you haven’t even heard of. It goes on and on and it’s lots and lots of fun.
Each time I test a new baking recipe, I’m always on the edge, scared of wasting ingredients in case my attempt fails. My earliest baking disaster includes adding too much lemon extract to a bread batter that it ended up too sour my sisters and My Man even held a contest to whoever can stand eating most of the bread. 😆
I also had a horrible, horrible time making a flourless chocolate cake! Instead of a nice, moist cake I ended up having something that is more like a pie than a cake because the egg whites I added weren’t whipped enough. All the chocolate I wasted following that recipe!
But I guess eating failures and successes is all a part of testing new recipes for baking. You never really go anywhere if you don’t keep on trying, and maybe, that excitement mixed with anxiety as to what will come out of the oven is all a part of the charm of baking.
Oh speaking of, the chocolate brownie above is a new baking recipe I tried today. It’s dark chocolate, eggs, butter, sugar, and pili nuts. I have been making brownies before using a different brownie recipe, but I tried this new one wondering how things will be different… turns out – just the same!
Now excuse me while I eat these lovely brownies. 🙂 Don’t worry, the first bite is for you! Happy weekend everyone!
