                              It's fun to go back and watch this after seeing the sourdoughnut trilogy. There's a bunch of references shared between them I'd forgotten about.

                                          Pro tip. 1ml of water is 1g. Therefore, 250 g of water is 250ml i.e. 1cup

BA is henceforth my go to food based comedy channel.
