My oven hates me.

Ok, it doesn’t really hate me. But it hates when I bake. It does not want me to even attempt to bake anything that is supposed to rise. Cakes. Muffins. Not even the boxed stuff. After many (many) failed attempts at it. I’ve given up. I just leave the baking for my daughter Raquel and for Ruthy. Now, I just stick to treats that are perfectly fine being flat, and doughy, and with no fluff factor.

So, if you’re anything like me, you’ll love this recipe. And if you have trouble with this one too… Well… I hate to say it, but it’s time to admit it. Baking just isn’t your thing. And you know what? That is perfectly fine. That’s what bakeries are for, aren’t they?

Have a great week!
