Baking is chemistry, I know this. This appeals to that geeky part of me that likes to think about all of the ingredients coming together and performing an experiment.
When the experiment is successful, I’ve got something to share and give to friends. When it’s not, well, I hope I don’t have that many baking failures. I’m hoping that this will give me some extra impetus to get the kitchen remodeled in 2010. Right now it’s a horrible work area, even when the counters are clear.
Tonight’s experiment was cranberry pecan blondies. Which ended up much better than I thought they would, although there was a pan under greasing error that makes them difficult to remove from said pan in one piece.
Knowledge has been gained, which qualifies this experiment as a success. A delicious success.
