Why I am going to give up bake

Why I am going to give up bake

Hello,

Happy Friday my love I hope you all had a wonderful day I would love to know what you have been up to so let’s have a chat in the comments.

Today I have been super busy I haven’t really had time just to myself and I have work over the weekend so I really don’t have time to just relax. Today I thought I would share with you the absolute disaster I had while making shortbread for the very first time. I just want to make it clear that I will not be baking in the foreseeable future because I almost gave myself food poisoning and I just can’t cook well technically bake for shite.

The shortbread recipe

The ingredients

  • 225g unsalted butter, softened plus extra for greasing110g caster sugar, plus extra for dusting225g plain flour, plus extra for dusting110g cornflourPinch of salt

  • 110g caster sugar, plus extra for dusting225g plain flour, plus extra for dusting110g cornflourPinch of salt

Method

  1. Lightly butter 2 trays, or line with baking parchment.
  2. Put the butter and sugar into a large bowl and cream together, using an electric hand-held whisk or wooden spoon, until light and fluffy.Sift the flour and cornflour into the bowl, add the salt and mix together until smoothly combined.
  3. Sift the flour and cornflour into the bowl, add the salt and mix together until smoothly combined.

  4. Roll out the dough between 2 pieces of baking parchment to a thickness of 1cm. Prick the dough all over with a fork and cut into triangles or whatever shapes you like, using a knife or a biscuit cutter.Re-roll the scraps once to cut more (if you re-roll too many times the dough may start to get greasy).Put the shortbreads on the prepared baking trays and chill for at least 30 minutes.

I made a complete mess of this I wont lie, the middle was raw, then I burnt them. They sounded like bricks when I was tipping them into the bin.

Almost all of my baking has turned into an absolute disaster! I’m officially giving up and I’ll stick to cooking my chicken dishes.

Are you better at baking or cooking? I would love to know.

    I’m okay at baking but I often rely on my mums help for some things. You should try again soon. Maybe try something simpler? Anyway you can do it!

    I’m better at baking rather than cooking but I really need to improve with my cooking skills x

      I guess we all have our own talents, I’ve tried baking a cake earlier, it turned out better than I thought it would 😊 xx
