Out sick today. Woke up with the body unable to quite move, a huge headache plus felt feverish.
I had been craving for cake since Saturday. So in the evening, I decided to bake, since I had practically slept the entire day. And I should be eating something I have been craving, since I am unwell?
The result: a disgustingly bitter cake that was overbaked (and hence super dry).
I am really quite irritated now, as this used to be a recipe that was loved by all. What went wrong? I mean, I know why it's dry (overbaked). But why bitter?? I added the stated amount of sugar.. Unless I changed the recipe previously and forgot to note it down. Gotta experiment again!
Anyways, because the cake was so disgustingly dry, I thought to myself: maybe I can make it into a biscotti, since biscotti simply means "twice-baked" right?
So, I baked at 180C for 10 mins on one side, and 10 on the other (should reduce the time to 5 minutes on the second side as those came out dark brown and tasted slightly charred).
