Based on Pass/Fail

Based on a pass/fail, yesterday's bake was a fail. Even though I balanced the weight of the dry ingredients with the leavening agents and liquid (to achieve the correct rise), the texture of the sponge was wrong. Lucky for me, troubleshooting is where I shine. So it's back to the lab.

But not yet.

First, it's Aldi (our location is clean and wonderful), for the new sales and maybe the tractor store for stinky hooves for the pups. As for getting done by 4PM yesterday, I wasn't even in the ballpark. But I slept good, don't have any rashes.

Go me. Rah.

  3. How was the taste? Which is more important to me than texture?

    1. Wasn't horrible but far too dry. Which made both taste and texture a tad wonky.

    2. But I did buy them bones tonight that are roasting in the oven now. Filled with gooey goodness that they love.

    1. Man alive, I'd be sad if our location closed down. The manager does a great job at stocking clean organic produce with lots of daily and weekly deals.

  8. I'm not worried about you, Wonder Woman. Whatever is wrong will become right in your secret lab. Plus, it's fun experimenting, isn't it? I just finished about an hour of mini people photo shooting. So much fun!

    1. Thanks, Martha. Troubleshooting is fun for me. Did another batch tonight, seems to have worked but the real test will be come morning. Did they go back to batter state, or stay good. Dun, dun, dun.

      Very cool on the mini people photo shooting session. Love the stuff you've been doing. So fun and it seems like it would be fun but relaxing, too.

      Did you treadmill it today? I didn't. But I was this close to getting my 30 in, this close I say, this close.
