Oh yeah, punk?! Well, my recipe’s better than your recipe!
I’m sure at this point in your life pancakes are not anything special, and I understand that. But everyone’s got a different recipe for them and each one has different measurements and wait times and fancy ingredients like whole wheat organic vanilla beet sugar blessed by a lamb with vegan wool.
And you know that at Mamaland Island ain’t nobody got time for dat.
I love making cakes and pastries that require more work. It’s fun and therapeutic. I bake when I’m mad, sad, happy, bored, anything. But sometimes I don’t feel like doing much work and still want something chocolaty and cake-like. This inevitably leads me to brownies.
Have any of you seen this zebra stripe cake tutorial? Once I saw it, I knew I had to try it. It looks so flawless and tedious to make on the inside, but really it’s just a trick of how you arrange your batter.
I find it to be a real problem for matzo desserts (and Passover food in general) to taste edible. It’s quite difficult to achieve a taste that borders on something you might consider eating when you don’t keep kosher for Passover.
I have to say, I wouldn’t have expected it from myself, either. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are my favorite? What has this world come to?
I know, I know. But rest assured, I don’t like healthy-tasting things, so these aren’t some sort of sugar-free, flax-raisin, whole wheat concoction. No way. We treat our desserts with respect around here.
