I made it at night, which is sort of weird for me because usually all my baking takes place in the afternoon.. You know, when I should be doing other important stuff. But anyway, everything was going well. The batter tasted good, the oven was preheated, all that jazz. I was rushing to get it in the oven a little bit because the rest of my family was about to start a movie and I didn’t want to miss out.
So I spread the batter into a pan, popped it in the oven, set the microwave timer and plopped down onto the living room couch.
You can probably tell where this is going, but I like telling stories so I’m going to continue. During some part of the movie (no doubt one that was quite loud), the timer I had set beeped its annoying beep. Only this time it was slightly less annoying because I managed not to hear it.
Some 50 minutes later my mom casually asked “Is that cake still in the oven?“. This spurred a full out freak out on my part in which I burst out of my chair and sprinted to the kitchen. Pulling this Chocolate Cookie Cake out of the oven, I was convinced that it was ruined. Luckily, I was wrong.
Later when I cut into this cake I realized that it wasn’t even burnt. Perhaps a bit overdone, but nothing I couldn’t eat. So that’s what I did. I served myself a big old piece, and after devouring it, concluded that if this thing could taste good after I forgot about it in the oven, then it would taste absolutely amazing when actually cooked the right amount.
Enjoy guys! Just don’t watch a movie while you bake it…
