Ok, talking about this history of chemical leavening might not be your thing, but it’s really fascinating.
Even it you’re not into kitchen physics the way I am–hey I live with a bunch of engineers and it has changed me. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it, but the way–anyway, watching period baking methods is still pretty fascinating.
Given my family’s penchant–ok, obsession–with baked goods, I will probably be trying this one out sooner rather than later! Probably shouldn’t have said that. If they read this, they’ll be expecting gingerbread tonight!
If you try this one out, be sure and let me know how it goes!
