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 (:
