Our house has been in a bit of an uproar as we are having a new hardwood floor installed in the living room. What with the chaos of home improvement, I haven't been able to bake much. Once I got home from work today, I decided to make the Russian Grandmother Apple Cake from Baking. I made the dough, and only then noticed that it needed to be chilled for a couple of hours. It's in the fridge now but after working all day and dealing with home improvement project, I didn't feel like staying up late cutting apples. So I threw together some Classic Brownies: quick, easy, delicious. And a reward for hard work!
I'll be baking quite a bit during the next few days, but the brownies were definitely a good "rewind" choice.
