December really is the month for communal eating parties – I have already baked for three potlucks this month, and we’re barely halfway through! In order to get prepped for the festivities that were coming up this week, I spent my Sunday elbow deep in flour, chocolate and cauliflower. That’s right, I said cauliflower.
Just to clarify, there is no crack in this brownie. There is some booze. And you may not be able to stop eating after just one piece, making it addictive. And because of this a colleague referred to these as my “crack brownies”, and so the name has stuck. But actual crack? Nope.
How many eggs must be sacrificed in order to obtain 3 clean egg whites worthy of whipping into stiff peaks? In my case, the answer is 10. 10 whole eggs were sacrificed to the baking Gods before I could get this cake process started. But I digress.
