Recently I asked a very random question on Facebook and Twitter. You see, I was making brownies from a box yesterday. (Had a total sweet tooth moment.) And I always get a kick out of the directions that state:
"Stir about 50 strokes with a spoon."
So I asked on my status: "Do people really count out the 50 stir strokes instructed on a brownie mix box?"
And mostly everyone said YES!
Yes, they actually count the strokes.
Other random answers included, yes, but it always takes more than 50 strokes, or yes, when you have OCD like me, etc.
So I need further research just to appease my curious mind because you see, I'm a random stirrer. I stir the batter and when it looks mixed, I'm happy and dump it in the pot to bake.
So that's my question TFCers!
How do you stir your brownie mix?
a) Yep, I stir and count out the 50 strokes
b) Heck no, I stir till it looks good
c) Brownies in the box!!?? I'm a bake from scratch peep all the way!
d) Um, I don't eat brownies...
