Objectively speaking, I cannot make brownies. It doesn’t matter which recipe I use or steps I take, they all come out somewhat awful. Until now, I thought I was alone – but I am not. A friend has fallen into the same problem. Her solution though, isn’t to stay away from brownies. It’s to remake them in her own image.
Here is the original and for those who can’t make brownies:
double the water
double the baking soda
and, from the ashes of failed brownies, you have a cake that was waiting to be born.
