So, how did it taste?

I’m so accustomed to treating baking like an exact science with precise measurements and everything, it’s nice to see that even when throwing something together like that, you can end up with something that at least looks (and hopefully tastes) not half bad.

I couldn’t stop cringing when he was ‘measuring’. I always weigh everything when baking so I was surprised that it turned out ok!

Get over it about the measuring. I loved that it said be precise and he wasn’t and it turned out well. Pay attention to what amounts look like and you will find that there is a lot of leeway in how much you add of anything.

The reason there are “precise” measurements in recipes is that folks do need some kind of guideline but it is not rocket science. Have a little fun with your cooking and get creative. I’m happy that it showed the results were just fine.

Aloha,
Ellie

Why don’t you “get over it”? What a rude thing to say. Sometimes if you don’t measure things precisely the result is not as good.

Hilarious! Especially the part when “measuring” out the ingredients. Great video!

Please print the darned recipes out. Even though I am retired I do not have enough time to watch 10 minute videos for each recipe and, furthermore, I am deaf so the dialog escapes me.

Any reason not to print? I’d like to try that chocolate cake with damson plums but I’m not going to watch a !@#$video 15 times to get the recipe.

Aloha anyway,
Ellie

Ewww, sorry, but I can’t imagine that final product would taste good. Amusing to watch, though.

Looked pretty tasty to me but I couldn’t tell how much sweetener he was putting into it. Printed recipes would be a great boon.

Aloha,
Ellie

I wrote out the recipe for myself… Why should I hoard? Sharing is caring. (You need to plan ahead a little. Refrigerate a can of coconut milk overnight if you want to make the whipped filling.) Preheat oven to 325F In a bowl combine (I used a wisk): -3/4 c. coconut flour -3/4 c. almond flour -3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder (sifted?) -1 tsp. baking powder -1 tsp. sea salt In a separate mixing bowl combine with mixer: -1 c. grape seed oil or melted coconut oil -10 eggs -1 Tbsp. vanilla extract (organic, gluten-free) -1 1/2 c. agave nectar… Read more »
