    Can you try making gourmet Starbucks Coffee Cake? But like the *original* one, from 10 years ago. The really good, darker colored one, not the bland Sysco one they sell now.

    I still don't understand why moist is a word that makes people cringe. its just a word. if you have cringy connotations about it, maybe you got a dirty mind - and cant come to terms with it.

    There are so many things to like about this video. Claire is an exceptional teacher and communicator, explaining each technique clearly and simply. In addition to just being a delightful beautiful human being, her honesty and simple self-confidence is beguiling. What a treat it is to watch you, Claire! Thank you for sharing your gifts. Michel

    I'm really curious about why this/not that. She does a great job of explaining the leavening chemistry, but I am really curious about why oil and not butter, and why full fat yogurt rather than greek.
