Baking at last!!!

Filed under: Kitchen — agnes @ 4:28 pm


Thanks to Michel Roux’s Eggs that now I can learn to bake confidently. I have always dislike handling greasy buttered utensil, let alone trying to figure out how to be an “oven whisperer”. My oven or toaster oven is a leftover from MIL. I sent it twice for temperature and timer calibration and servicing but still could not get accurate temperature setup. I gave up and bought an oven thermometer to check.

I love Genoese Sponge Cake from Michel’s Eggs  book. In fact was obsessed with it for the past continuous 3 days, baking before and after dinner. I am happy with my progress. Tomorrow I shall bake again if my fever is gone. Like it so much that I have the recipe in my heart all the time. The basic ingredients makes the recipe a safe choice to start learning baking again as I don’t like the idea of wasting food.
