Lemon Brownies with Blueberries in a Mascarpone Trifle

  I learned to cook from my Mother. But if you weren’t taught how to cook as a kid, it’s never too late to learn, especially when you can take a look at Bakery Classes.in’s top recommendations to become a better baker.

   When I was a kid my Mom was always in the kitchen making a cake or brownies or home made Tollhouse Cookies.
   Our kitchen I grew up in had an old antique oven from the fifties.
   It was a bad ass oven.
  My Grandmother has a similar one.
   It’s so funny how all these new vacuums and TV’s only last a few years but things like antique ovens can last fifty years. (And believe me, in our family, we use the oven every day)
   One thing I remember from being a little kid is having my Mom shoot
   “No running in the house! My cake will fall!”
   We live at over six thousand feet and growing up not only did I learn to bake at an early age but I learned the ins and outs of high altitude baking (You always add a little extra flour)
   As I made this cake today, inspired  by the amazing lemon cake torte at the Cheesecake Factory, I was just remembering how paranoid my Mom always was about her cakes falling.
   And when the cake did fall, she was always blaming it on us kids and our shenanigans! (It couldn’t possibly be the high altitude!)
