- “Umm, you aren’t beerguyrob” Saturday night’s Open Thread. – September 23, 2017
Hi there commentists, there was some discussion for an article on how I cook my edibles so to start your Saturday morning here is baking with Litre.
Note – I have a medical card for a back injury so this is all legal on my end. Hell, the only way you can get it legally in my province is to your door by post as their are no dispensaries.
Mrs. Cola asked what kind of cheesecake I wanted for Father’s day which led me to two different types so I decided I would make one myself and was looking to do this post for a while so. I then stumbled upon a recipe for cheesecake brownies and I thought peanut and chocolate would be absolutely perfect. My first thought was not that she could make it for me but that I could make this with cannabutter and it would not taste like weed at all due to the strong flavoUrs. The butter I have is a lot stronger than the stuff on that recipe as my brother-in-law who makes it is a sadist. So here we are.
Note: After I made these I took too big a piece and was pretty spaced because I didn’t feel anything yet from the “tasting”. Rookie move.
Due to issues like this doctors recommend dabbing cannabis oil on basically anything as then you know the dosage you are ingesting. However, when your younger brother in law sends you really strong butter though the mail who are you to throw it away? Some websites reccomend to spread the butter on toast for the same effect. . Weed toast?That is crazy talk, I would rather eat Canned Ham smothered in Vegemite.
Currently I am using a strand that is 17.1% THC, grown outdoors and helps with the back pain. It has 2% CBD so it is pretty psychotropic. I usually like a 1-1 strand but the distributor I use was out of what I usually order. There are a lot of pages dedicated to the difference between the THC vs CBD and I will leave it to you to do your own research. I believe in the properties in cannabis that help people. By doing this baking I am helping Mrs. Cola out as well as she is a dietician at the cancer clinic and regularly gets asks about ingesting it because during chemotherapy smoking is extra frowned upon. Ingesting can help with patients pain, anxiety, and helps with their appetites which is very important. What I did here was make 2 batches, one for me and one for my wife who had no cannibutter in hers.
Baking is scientific and has little to no wiggle room to maneuver from the staple items in the recipe so quit throwing around the flour and measure stuff. FlavoUrs you can change but the staples be exact.
Brownie base mix
8 oz of chocolate, the kind in the baking aisle, not an impulse buy at the Piggly Wiggly
1/2 of White Sugar
1/2 Cup of butter ( I like salted because salt and chocolate are great). Due to the strength of this butter I went 1/4 cup of cannibutter and a 1/4 cup of regular butter.
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon of salt, or none if you are using salted butter.
1/2 cup of all purpose flour, or some hippie flour
8 oz Cream cheese
1 tsp Vanilla Extract. Lucky enough Mrs Cola makes her own at home with some home witchery
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/3 cup of peanut butter, has to be smooth on this one, sorry friend but a crunchy cheesecake layer is not appealing
2 large eggs
2 oz of bittersweet chocolate
2 tbsp All purpose flour
A tablespoon of whipping cream
Alright make sure everything is soft, for some of you that will not be a problem. Brownie mix is the base so we do it 1st, if you have a mixer like YeahRight then fantastic, if not then you will be stirring stuff in many bowls. Heat your oven up to 325, grab a 9×9 or 8×8 square pan, grease it up.
On low heat melt the chocolate with the butter(s) til silky smooth and let cool 10 mins, do not lick the spatula, I did without thinking, but at least everything was already measured. In the mixer fire in the eggs, vanilla and sugar and beat it until fluffy, usually between 2-4 minutes. Then slowly add the chocolate/butter mixture, then the flour, and the salt until you are in batter heaven. In hindsight I would have added chocolate chips as those make anything better. Spread this evenly in the pan and put it aside.
Next we are going to make the cheesecake layer. Beat the peanut butter, vanilla, and cream cheese until smoove,and taste. Delicious. Add the sugar and the eggs and mix until creamy and smooth. Take out 1/4 of this mixture and put aside as it will come in handy later. Spread the 3/4 evenly over the brownie layer. Now fire the chocolate in ole Vinny Johnson and melt it. DO NOT BURN IT! Then stir the melted chocolate into the 1/4 on reserve. place spoonfuls of the chocolate cheesecake mixture on top and spread around with the thin side of a butter knife. At this point I was pretty stoned and made a mess of the designs so I smeared them. Sorry, I am not an artiste.
Bake the pan 35 minutes or more if you live at a higher altitude as that science stuff is real. Cover it, fire it in the fridge for an hour and enjoy.
So moral of the story is never trust your younger brother in law who makes cannibutter and moonshine as a hobby or be real nice to him so he sends you his wares. If you lick the spoon when making batter or dough beware because an hour later you will be watching Burnistoun (avail on Cdn Netflix) while your wife asks you every minute what they are saying because their accents are quite thick.
Eating weed is far better for you than smoking it, once you become a good cook with it you can make anything with the oil or butter and mask the taste if need be.
