Before I get to my big cupcake fail, there are some other pictures I failed to share…
Braised cabbage with onions and carrots:
z played in the kitchen on Sunday!
He roasted a whole chicken! AH!
I ate lunch at Whole Foods.
z surprised me on Wednesday night by ordering Thai from Bangkok 54!
Crispy tofu and basil!
Ok…on to the baking failure.
We had a bunch of blackberries that I wanted to use, so I pureed them and pushed them through a strainer to get the seeds out. I found this recipe online and tried to follow it…
Here’s where I went wrong…I don’t have a mixer to ‘cream’ the butter and sugar…and I didn’t have enough sugar!
The batter was beautiful and I really wanted them to turn out…
They were really oily and tasted like baking powder. The consistency was gross.
This is what happens when you don’t follow the recipe…OOPS! Baking really is a science!
