Janelle Shane has been using a neural network that she's trained to generate cookbook recipes. When Janelle shared the ingredients for "Chocolate Baked And Serves" on Twitter I thought it looked like a plausible list of ingredients - even with the addition of horseradish.

Chocolate Baked And Serves
cookies, deserts

1 cup butter
2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3  eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup white cocoa
1 cup milk
1 cup horseradish or sour cream

And so it began...

I followed the recipe as much as I could - not having white cocoa powder I used regular stuff and when I got to the milk it was clear that milk was going to push the consistency of this recipe over the edge so I missed it out...

Here's the result, baked in both cookie and cake format:

And you know what? It made a damn fine cake. Cookies were of passible consistency but it's definitely more of a cake mixture. The horseradish is a subtle background flavour and the overall spicy, peanut-y, chocolate-y flavour is ace.

Thanks Janelle... and thank you to the neural network for being so creative!
