Since he started making GF pizza with me, little petirrojo is showing an interest in cooking. This week he started compiling a book of daily experimental recipes, and after two so-so tasting desserts, he asked yesterday for my input. I helped him plan his next experiment (“what kind of thing are you going for?… A drink?… Something spongy and cakey?”). He decided to bake “something cakey”, and I coached him on the right ratios for a muffin. He made all the decisions within the framework and came up with a delicious “sweet cake”.

Sweet Cake (an SCD muffin)

I was surprised by the rising power of Joaquin’s recipe and loved the flavor, and I wanted to have sweet cake again for breakfast. It was so cool to bake with my little enano this morning, and we used the opportunity to record a tiny tutorial to share Joaquin’s recipe.
