the month of November kicked off, I decided to take on a baking course-- at
home. I was thinking of taking formal classes either in Tesda or some fancy
baking school in the Metro but I can't find one which will fit my schedule. So,
I asked my mother and cousin if they could teach me the basics and they happily
agreed to take me in as their student. The ~informal classes started on October
30 and my first lesson was making puto!
it was just that easy. But it's kinda difficult especially the mixing part. But
it's more of a fun activity than a tiring one. The best part is seeing the
finished product right in front of your eyes! It's just happy and fulfilling.
Hahaha. My first batch of putos were some sort of a fail. Hahaha. We thought
sobra siya sa itlog and kulang sa water so the texture was too compact and
heavy sa tiyan. Hahaha. Busog agad lahat sa bahay. The taste, according to my
father and siblings (syempre sila yung taste testers) is okay. The cheese on
top enhanced the flavor so that's a plus point. We decided to improve our puto
recipe-- the Goldilocks puto being the standard. I'm gonna do another batch
prolly this coming Saturday and this time I hope it's better.
I think I'm starting to like the idea of me baking pastries like muffins and
cupcakes. It's really an achievement for me to be able to whip something
delicious and special at the same time. Yesterday, I was able to perfect my
no-bake blueberry cheesecake recipe-- the crust was thick enough and the
cheesecake was really good-tasting. The whole family loved it. Hahaha. This is
happiness! What's another plus factor is that I'm learning new things and
gaining new experiences which is fun to share.
