Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame;
they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
I’m a baker. I love baking cookies and cupcakes and muffins – never brownies though. They’re much too complicated for me. I can never get them just right. No matter what I do, they always come out too hard or too gooey (which can still be yummy, but also, very messy). To this day, I have not found the secret to making perfectly fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth brownies with just the right amount of chocolatey gooeyness (holla back if you got some tips, ladies! Gents, you too!).
Finding the perfect balance in a baked good takes the perfect mixture of things: base ingredients, spices, whisking skills, heat, and of course, time. Those last two are pretty important – they can either create a delicious treat or a total disaster.
