lesson learned.

before being baked.

My first try at baking was a fail.

I made sure I had all the ingredients. It was all fine until I placed the pan in the turbo.

I knew I was doing something wrong but I still gave it a go.

second attempt. with chocolate frosting.
I placed the pan too near the halogen that it burned the chocolate morsel topping. I thought it was just the topping, so I tried to save the brownie by putting chocolate frosting.

After it has chilled, I tried eating one bite. HARD. It wasn't as hard as a rock but it was still hard. And bitter.

The middle part tasted fine, but it wasn't too fudge-y.

Lesson learned: Don't bake too near the, uhm, what do you call them, the cover?

And cut the baking time. According to the stuff I've read online, just now, when I should've done it before I started everything.. Using a turbo broiler for cooking or baking reduces the cooking time to 50%.

According to this site:

... if you're adapting a regular oven recipe, remember to cut cooking time in half and lower the temperature of the turbo by about 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Haaaah, I should've checked that instead of obsessing on recipes!

Sayang tuloy yung one batch. :(

Heck, it's better to fail and learn than not to try at all, he said.

Like what I said, lesson learned.


And it's always best to do a knowledge check before starting anything.
