I am not an accomplished baker. While I have gotten pretty good a bread and your basic cookies and brownies that is about the extent of my baking. I think its the "science" aspect of it that turns me off. I am more of a wing it cook and having to weigh out the flour, sugar etc just doesn't float my boat.
But my son was recently exposed to the starbucks coffee cake (thanks hon) and he talks about nothing else. At close to $4 a pop it's not something I care to indulge him.
So I set out to make Martha Stewarts version.
Man does my whole house smell good! But ugh what a pain in the ass! My son loved it and I know he will want it next weekend too.
Will this baking thing ever become enjoyable??
