Whoa, I've been watching these two chefs on YouTube for about a year now, and I'm actually absorbing things from it just listening and watching! I've never really baked anything (especially without a recipe), but today I wanted to try baking something and it turned out shockingly well! At least, shockingly well for me having just ad-libbing it.

Ended up with a little sweet loaf using 1 cup of flour, ~2+ tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp baking powder, a small handful of chocolate chips, 1 egg, a few punches of salt, a little less that 1 tbsp melted coconut oil, and ~4+ tbsp water! I just combined the dry ingredients, then mixed in the wet ingredients until I had a loose, sticky dough.

Then I let it sit for a little while, maybe 15–20 minutes(? Longer probably would have been better but I was impatient), to let the flour hydrate. I greased a bread pan well with some more coconut oil and poured the dough in, spreading it all the way to the sides and trying to make sure there weren't air pockets in it. (This small amount of dough doesn't fill a bread pan very deep, and the end result only rises a little bit, maybe double the height.)

Then I put it in the oven, which was preheated to 350℉, for an hour, and out came a tasty little treat with a slight crust on the bottom!
