I did some baking at the weekend and loved it.
Weirdly I found it quite relaxing. The difference was weighing out all of the ingredients beforehand. It takes the thinking out of it, so all you have to do is follow the steps. It’s nice to see a bunch of raw ingredients turn into something which looks good.
It reminded me I need to cook more too.
Five years ago, I couldn’t manage much more than putting a pizza in the oven. Now, I’m actually quite a good cook. But, I haven’t stretched myself to cook new things much this year, so I will do more cooking this year. Perhaps even take a course on it.
Check my carrot cake and chocolate brownies (I reckon I am a few weeks away from being able to compete with Will’s brownies).
P.S – the recipes for these are in the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook.
