The Two Bakers
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods, enchiladas, black beans.
My cooking triumphs
My daughter's 3rd birthday cake: 12 inch diameter, 3 layers--bottom cheesecake, middle chocolate, top vanilla, with a white chocolate/cream cheese frosting. Crazy good.
My cooking tragedies
See my corn tortilla attempt/review. Not so great.

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce
I added 1 T Garam Masala thinking it was my cumin. As I was pouring in the tomato sauce I was thinking that it looked a little too thick--it was tomato paste. I couldn't find my turmeric. I didn't have ghee so I used olive oil. Everything else was as directed in the recipe. Moral of the story--this recipe is fool proof! It turned out great.

Chocolate Drop Cookies II
On its own, the cookie was just ok. I didn't make the frosting as is (no heavy cream on hand), but a simple chocolate glaze helped a lot. I was only able to get about 18 2" cookies out of this

Fluffy Pancakes
For years I thought "Why make pancakes from scratch, if the boxed mix is a fraction of the work, with fine results?" I just hadn't come across this recipe yet. This is my new pancake go-to recipe. I don't think we can go back to box! We add a ripe banana and they're perfect. I've never used the full 2T of vinegar it calls for (1 t at the most, and found a little tangy flavor I didn't like that time), but haven't had any problem with the fluff factor.
