I promised at the start of this blog that I would conquer the impossible, which among many things for me is....BAKING! I can't actually remember the last time I baked. The schedule of late has been so hectic, I've not premeditated a baking day in weeks and weeks!!
Well here is the end to the non-baking drought. Finishing my most recent attempts on a high note, I had confidence and experience on my side.
I chose to try creating the beautiful cupcakes pictured in Ad Hoc.
For the first time in at least a month, I had daylight to work with.
A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT!!!
Not yet complete, this is just the first step of the batter, which consisted of dry ingredients + butter.
Interestingly enough, Keller does not use the whole egg in this batter.
Instead egg whites are whipped up and folded into the dense batter starter pictured above.
