Baking attempt fail

24 Aug

I know you generally expect recipe blogs to post only successful recipes because really, who would want to read about botched attempts and failures?

However this blog is meant to be a journey of my baking and cooking adventures in the kitchen and that would naturally include making mistakes and learning from them 😛

I was trying to recreate this recipe http://busy-mommy.com/2012/03/nutella-and-streusel-swirled-banana-bread.html on Monday but maybe I didn’t take the time to read it properly in advance or I didn’t have the correct baking tray dimensions, and it went bad. It didn’t look anything like it should in the photos provided and the bread consistency was way too floury. I think the main problem arose because I halved the ingredients and maybe somewhere in there, my measurements went awry, causing this to be a botched attempt at a nutella and streusel banana swirl bread.

The making of the streusel – it didn’t turn all crumbly like the recipe said it should.

The banana bread mixture; with way too much nutella it seems.

The final product

It actually does look pretty much like a brownie! Haha, oh well, I guess I learn never to fiddle with recipes and to always ensure I have the correct baking tray (this tray was too wide, causing my bread to be very low and flat) .

S was really sweet though; he still bravely ate a few slices and said that it didn’t matter if it wasn’t a success, it only mattered that I baked it, for him (:

    Hi Floral Foodie- you don’t want to mix the bread and the Nutella- You only want to drizzle a little Nutella in between each banana bread layer. For the crumble, try mixing it with your hands and squishing all of the Crisco so there are no large chunks. Hope this helps!

      Wow thanks for reading and for your kind advice! I love the pictures of the bread you posted (:
      I will certainly bear all that in mind should I ever try the recipe out again!
