Well, it was about time I made something awful. Haha, you can't win every time, it's a fact of life. And it gives you good stories to tell, yes?
|I stole these from the dining hall.|
I've been itching to bake for days now, but I have no eggs or butter (going to the store tomorrow, thank goodness). So I was browsing the internets, looking for a way to cook mochi, when I stumbled upon this youtube channel called The Daily English Show. I'm pretty sure it's geared towards Japanese people trying to learn English. The host has an awesome New Zealand accent. Check it out. Anyway. One of their videos was this recipe for something called Choco Rice Nom Nom Slice.
After I finished giggling, I decided to attempt to make them, since hey, they contained no eggs or butter. And um....they were not good. Maybe I did something wrong, but they were quite dry. So dry. I was disappointed to let down the people eagerly awaiting baked goods, but for me, the process is more satisfying than the eating. I'm cooking with friends later in the week, and one of these was requested. So I'll redeem myself.
I'm not going to post the recipe initially, since it wasn't very good, but if you want to try it for yourself, leave me a comment and I'll add it on here. Also, if you know of any good butter and eggless recipes, let me know!
