THE ASSASSIN FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING - MAP AND GUIDE

Recommended Posts

Oooh. I might have to ask. I'm not the best at baking, so I'm a little leery. On a level of 1 to Should Not Attempt if You're Not a Baker, how hard is this?

 

Baking, in general, is just culinary science. Biggest thing I can say, in my experiences, about baking is this: dry ingredients like flour should be poured into the measuring cup. Don't just take the cup, shove it into the bag and measure. The flour gets packed into the cup and you end up with too much flour.

I'll try to remember to post it when I get home tonight. It uses a boxed cake as base, so it's really super easy. The awesome part is the glaze that is filled with run, the cake itself gets drunk ;)

 I am sooo gonna have to ask...

 

Mayyyyyyyybe I'll start handing out special titles "to keep" (like raptron's) to people who really shine in the minis?  Thoughts? :D

 

hmmm...how does one "shine" a drunken cake?

 

I think I may have a new challenge goal...but if the titles are "gifted", I'd be afraid of what I'd get assigned...that's how I ended up with the name "Bast" over *cough* years ago!!!  ...and I STILL can't get rid of it!  LOL!!

Baking, in general, is just culinary science. Biggest thing I can say, in my experiences, about baking is this: dry ingredients like flour should be poured into the measuring cup. Don't just take the cup, shove it into the bag and measure. The flour gets packed into the cup and you end up with too much flour. 

 

which is why we measure flour and things in weight, not volume ;)

 

Another hint: if you start a dough with beating butter soft, it is well worth beating the butter real soft (although don't melt in pot that changes everything) and again when adding eggs, whereas not stirring/beating too long when you add the flour/other dry ingredients. Just enough to have it mixed well but no longer. In this way the cake will be juicy and have a lighter texture.

Mmmh love baking and haven't in a long time. Will actually do that today for hubby's birthday tomorrow. Won't give him drunken cake to take to work - although the results might be interesting :D - will bake him these rather:

delicious chocolaty dough with cherries baked in, topped with a custardy, butter cream layer and then covered with molten chocolate on top, yum

Best part: kitchen machine will do most work for me, I get to do the savoring :P

 

Better work my butt off in the mine battle to compensate  :onthego:
