Confession: Failures (Part 2)

July 22, 2012

6 months ago I admitted my baking disasters. If you thought that wasn’t a frequent thing, here’s proving you wrong:

Peanut Butter & Jelly Bread

Do you see this? Awful result. Hitchcock couldn’t have thought of a more horrific outcome. I could not roll the grape jelly in the dough if my life depended on it. That’s what burned all the edges. If I had any baking confidence, it was ruined when my apartment smoked up.

Lemon Pound Cake

I made 3 of these. I kid you not. First tasted sour. Not the normal lemon-baked-good-happy-kind of sour. Second fell apart everywhere. Third was grossly sour and bitter. I thought maybe it was my taste buds, so I added sugar icing. Nasty. I seriously think the lemons were off. I drink lemons in my water and these had no flavor. Maybe that’s why recipes specify to use Meyer lemons.

Marble Chiffon Cake

I read what a chiffon cake is, light and fluffy. You beat egg whites until fluffy, then lightly fold into the other ingredients. I read it 700 times. No wait, 7,000 times! What did I do? I mixed like an animal. As though mixing was the only workout I was going to get for the next year. Has your body ever act against your brain’s will? The result? Dense. Am I surprised? No.

Blueberry Lemon Curd Danish

This was from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day book.  Apparently danish is just not my thing. See Failures Part 1.

Peanut Butter Crispy Bars

I have no idea what happened. The rice bottom was soaking with corn syrup. What a waste of precious chocolate. I made 4 new recipes on this day to ship out for birthdays, this was my ‘safe recipe’. HA! I assumed it was a glorified rice crispy treat. Nope. Wrong. Fail.

    This potentially lowers your blood pressure and reduces strress on
    your heart. I did nnot experienxe any improvement in
    falling orr staying asleep at all. The tea taster needs to have his or her taste
    buds aliive to understand and differentiate the contents
    of taste giving alkaloids in the tea samples.
