When I was experimenting with avoiding dairy in my cooking, I tried a brownie recipe. It called for coconut oil instead of a typical dairy ingredient.
The first time, it tasted good—irresistible. I would eat them often. My family disliked them. But I enjoyed them.
The second time, they had a crumbly texture and tasted like they were burnt. I had to throw them away.
The third time, they tasted a tiny bit better. That was it. My family begged me to give up on that recipe.
Oh well. I guess if I want to experiment with dairy-free desserts again, I’ll look for another recipe. Sometimes recipes don’t always result the way you want them to nor do they necessarily end up the same ways each time you use it.
