    There’s an essential service still open that would have let you make brownies no. 4.2 in that book.

    Brownies number 2 sounds like they would definitely have included ex-lax

    I have the feeling you have a wonderfully stocked pantry. I made cookies yesterday for the first time in two weeks because I’m rationing my flour until I find more – stores near me are all out still!

    Chewy is normally how I like my brownies. If it’s cakey then it might as well be cake, but that might just be a States thing.

    Thanks for keeping up the content while we’re all stuck at home Glen, I really appreciate it. Now, here’s hoping our supermarket still has condensed milk!

    How magic was my first thought.
    My second was that I wonder if the magic provider was working tonight at the local petrol station.

    The first cake looks a bit like a Swedish Kladdkaka*, lit. “Goo cake” (Slightly crispy surface, gooey in the middle). Almost like a brownie, but no baking powder/Leavening agents (or condensed milk), cooked for 10-15 minutes (at 200C).

    (*Maybe a slightly failed one, but they tend to be the best ones)

    *LOL wasn’t quite what I expected when I read “Magic Brownies” *giggles (reaches for one of the other type to deal with chronic pain)

    A lot of people think the magic is in the recipe. But today we learned the magic was in you all along.

    Would love to know how you find these cook books, sorry if it’s been mentioned in a previous video. These are great videos, keep it up!

    Glen, this reminds me of the blondies I make. They have a shameful amount of brown sugar and butter in them. Baked and warm, they are completely inedible because they’re sticky and gooey. The first time I made them, I ate one warm with a scoop of ice cream and had a realization. The texture changed completely as it cooled. It went from blondie soup to a very chewy bar in about 2 minutes and the ice cream sat. Did you allow these to cool completely on version 1?

    I have noticed that many of the sweetened condensed milk recipes have broken. I wonder if they changed the formula at one point. Both this and Key Lime/Lemon pie have to be fixed. Any thoughts on this?

    Hey Glen, been really enjoying the distraction of your videos during this lockdown. Any chance of doing one on crockpot savoury loaves of bread for folks who don’t have access to an oven. There are still tiny apt city folks out there who only have a burner, toaster oven and crockpots.

    I use wax paper every day. Great for covering dishes that go in the microwave.

    Thank you for showing the failure. We of the trying to bake club need to be reminded that even the best have to work at it. ^_^

    I can’t even imagine making brownies without eggs.
