Also, consider this your "warning" instead of having to get a "ticket" like I did. Ok, I didn't get a ticket, but I should have heeded warnings for reading more carefully because it stinks (sometimes literally!) when you make a mistake like this!
Ok, I found this great recipe for "Honey Oat Quick Bread" on EatingWell.com. Sounds great right? A healthy, hearty bread done in minutes? Yep. That's what I thought! So, excited to try my new recipe I couldn't wait to get home. When I did, I whipped out the bread pan, flipped the oven on and got to it. I wasn't cruising along nicely until I realized that I had put 2.25 TABLESPOONS of baking powder in it, instead of the 2.25 teaspoons it called for. Being an optimist I finished adding things and mixing it together...thinking to myself how much of a difference can that make???....boy I was wrong. Ok, nothing terribly tragic happened...it just overflowed several times and smoked up my kitchen. Then ended up looking a little out of sorts.
Surprisingly it still tastes pretty good. Now I use that qualifier because it's certainly not the way it should taste...but it will work I suppose. I can definitely taste the baking powder though...which mostly just makes me thirsty. I guess that part that makes me the most sad, is that I wasted all those ingredients...1/4 honey....1.33 c. whole wheat flour...etc.....oh well. I guess we can still probably eat it. Just is disappointing.
In order to be real with you on this blog, I've got to share the good, the bad and the ugly...well of sorts...with you. So here's my ugly...or bad...or well, you decide. :)
So my question is....have you ever?
