After collecting the necessary ingredients, dumping them into a conveniently placed cooking pot, and hearing the tell-tale tune of success one will read, “You’ll know this simple dessert is done baking when it smells just delightful”. With a bit of time and some Sheikah wisdom you too will enjoy a few regenerated hearts and a tasty treat!
