Moist isn't a disgusting word... If you want to take a disgusting word out of your vocabulary, stop saying protein instead of meat

I am thinking of doing this as muffins.
Geoffrey Alan
This recipe is delicious! I tested this recipe for my channel and it turned out well. This would be perfect as a muffin -- but probably hard to get the swirl in the cup.

This recipe is amazing. It has the taste of Halvah Thanks Claire! I used 1/2 cup of cocoa instead of the black sesame seeds. A new favorite.

Geoffrey Alan

Daniel H. I just tested this on my channel. I don’t have a spice grinder, so I did it in the blender. It worked OK, but I had some seed fragments - still got a distinct swirl though.

I made this and it was amazing. It’s on day three of sitting on the counter and somehow it keeps getting more delicious and soft. Claire is a food witch.

I personally don't like the poppy/vanilla variant, it's usually bone dry. I've had good experiences with oil-based cakes, so I wonder if this sesame version might be worth a try...
Geoffrey Alan

Can you try making gourmet Starbucks Coffee Cake? But like the *original* one, from 10 years ago. The really good, darker colored one, not the bland Sysco one they sell now.

I still don't understand why moist is a word that makes people cringe. its just a word. if you have cringy connotations about it, maybe you got a dirty mind - and cant come to terms with it.

There are so many things to like about this video. Claire is an exceptional teacher and communicator, explaining each technique clearly and simply. In addition to just being a delightful beautiful human being, her honesty and simple self-confidence is beguiling. What a treat it is to watch you, Claire! Thank you for sharing your gifts. Michel
