For most of the past week Lily has been trying to persuade us to have a cooking competition. Her initial idea involved kids cooking unassisted, but after talking through ways I saw this going poorly she decided she was ok with teams. This morning she said it was time, and declared it would be Lily + Jeff vs Anna + Julia.
Unfortunately, Anna was only interested in being a judge. After extended discussion Lily determined that we would be a team and Julia would compete as an individual. Luckily for Lily, when Julia woke up she was up for participating.
Lily started by making a list of the allowed ingredients:
Since we only have one non-vegan oven we weren't going to have things ready at the same time, and Julia wanted to eat hers for breakfast anyway; we decided she'd have the oven first. She was enough faster that she was done with the oven before Anna and I were even close to ready to put ours in.
Julia made chocolate popovers:
Lily and I made a sponge cake with chocolate buttercream frosting:
The cake was a clear judge's favorite:
Lily: does it win?
