Instead of writing, I decided baking would be a much better way to spend my day, especially since I was low on chocolatey eats.
I am an okay baker at best. I can follow recipes, 80% of the time they come out alright and they generally land somewhere between edible and good.
That being said, I don’t necessarily enjoy the baking process as I tend to stress if the yeast is working, if the dough is rising and if any of the flours have gone bad.
This time, tried a rice flour brownie recipe from https://www.theroastedroot.net/gluten-free-brown-rice-flour-brownies/ and happily it actually came out looking brownie-ish. (Insert tears of joy).
Actually, it was probably more of a dense chocolate loaf because I cut back the butter and sugar, but I’m counting it as a win. Next time, I think I’ll try it with milk chocolate.
