(#43 in the limited series: cooking/baking in the time of the coronavirus quarantine)
About a week before the deadline of the extended enhanced community quarantine, the announcement of yet another extension came…
The first thought in my head – I know that it is for my own safety but I am finding it more and more difficult to cope.
Well, when I am stressed… I do one of 2 things – I eat, or I cook/bake.
This time I baked and I looked for something that I really felt as comfort food. And I remember in my youth how I loved Taisan. I would buy it from the local (famous) bakeshop until my mom and I found a recipe for one that we were happy with.
I hadn’t baked it in at least 25 years! And somehow, I don’t see it in the bakeshops these days…
Thing is, I tried looking for a recipe in my cookbooks. I did find a couple but it is not come out the way I wanted. Then it occurred to me that the first place I should have looked in was my mom’s recipes!!! (Crazy of me, right?)
So there it was… in the middle of my mom’s clearbook!
(Sorry though, as always, I do not have her permission to share…)
Anyway, with the wonderful scent of the Taisan wafting throughout the house was comforting!
