So, uh…I was going to post a recipe today.
I was excited.
There I was…
Taking out these lovely frozen blackberries…
Thawing them out to perfection…
Mixing sugar and butter and yogurt…with lemon zest and vanilla.
And sifting in some flour…
So then I start mixing in the flour, and I’m like…Hm. This looks weird. Way denser than usual.
But…oh well. It’s been a while since I made the recipe. I guess I forgot how it’s supposed to look, right?
So I add the walnuts. They look pretty.
Then I add the blackberries. They look even prettier.
And I mix them all in and spread the batter into a pan, ready for the awesomeness that I know is to come! These are really light, cakey, lemony, vanilla-y, and delicious.
So I put them in my preheated oven, and…
Thirty minutes later, I take them out.
They look weird.
I don’t know what happened. Why are they so flat? Why aren’t they cakey like they’re supposed to be?
And then I look at the recipe again.
Three lines down on the ingredients list.
And this is me, at that very moment:
NOTE: Once I get over the tragedy of this event, I’ll do this recipe up right and post it in our recipe section. Don’t worry. I’ve already moved through Denial and Anger, and find myself in the Bargaining stage at present.
*If only I’d looked at the recipe one more time…*
*What if I hadn’t been concentrating so much on taking pictures!?*
*Maybe it’s okay…they’re kinda sorta chewy in a good way…?*
I’m on the fast track to the Acceptance stage, so hopefully it won’t be too long.
