I found a recipe for Guinness stout brownies. I swapped the flour and Guinness for gluten-free baking mix and gluten-free beer, and put half the batter in a conventional oven, and half in a solar cooker outside. The batch from the conventional oven came emerged hot and gooey (great with ice cream), but these brownies firmed up as they cooled down. The outside batch went into the Tulsi solar cooker at 2:00 p.m., and took them out of the cooker a little after 5:45 p.m. Both batches turned out well.
After cleaning up from baking brownies, this evening I visited the Mars website to enter to receive a coupon for a free chocolate bar/product, as part of the "Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act" promotion. Clever.
