One thing I secured in Logos Hope without second thought is the book about Baking. I must admit, this is my weakest part of all. Everything must be exact in baking, which is a far cry from the rest of cooking methods. There’s no such thing as estimation in either quantities in the ingredients or the cooking time. If you miss one thing, don’t expect you will get perfect-baked goodies. As a kid growing in the family’s kitchen, I must admit I was not exposed to baking obviously because we don’t have oven at home. The only thing I remember were those memories of Papsi preparing some native cakes dry-cooked in a pot without any water or oil.
Breads are my breakfast staple. I love cakes and the many kinds of savory or sweet pastries paired with coffee. Therefore I should learn how to bake.
