Invoking Baking Magic

On Monday evening, a sick relative requested some chocolate chip cookies to help them feel better.

I immediately starting assembling my ingredients only to discover that I didn’t have any eggs or egg replacer.

After a quick google search I found that ground flax and water was a good egg substitute (let’s leave aside the question of why I had FLAX but not eggs – my kitchen is a mystery, even to me.)

I was finding the mixture a little dry so I put a little yogurt in with it (yogurt was another suggested substitute) and the cookies turned out grand.

I know these substitutes work because of chemistry and whatnot but I prefer to think that I just used a different spell this time.

Let’s go with that.
