I'm Not Taking Them

I made brownies yesterday for the potluck today. However, I baked them too long. I cut them this morning in preparation for taking them to church and it was hard to get the knife through them. I'm not going to subject my friends to my bad baking experience. I'm a good cook and baker. They would never believe it if I took those brownies. So, I'll dip them in a glass of almond milk and eat them that way. I can feel those pounds adding on. Otherwise, they do taste good. Are you a good cook and baker that sometimes has a bad experience? Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me.

Your brownie does not look that burnt. They taste better with vanilla ice cream.

I'm sure it would taste better that way. It's not that burnt, but it was hard to cut,

I have experienced it sometimes and eat it on my own too or have no choice but throw it away if it is really bad that I can`t take it too in my own taste. That`s why when I will experiment something I make sure to make little of it. Your brownies looks good even though it is hard to cut You don`t want to share it with your neighbors?

No, I'll save them from having hard to chew brownies. I'll dunk them in almond milk. They'll be good that way.

Miss Val, I think am a bad baker as I have not experienced it yet. But you are a talented woman for knowing a lot: you write, you cook, excercise and more.

I consider myself a not-too-bad cook about 95% of the time but yes, occasionally something flops.

Oh darn. But yah, sometimes these things happen - even if we are good cooks and bakers. I've mismanaged the time and forgot there was something in the oven . . . that makes things extra crispy and even black sometimes .

Yes, it does. If you scrape the black off, you can find the rest is edible. I'll dunk them in almond milk. That will soften them up and make them edible.

@just4him I know I've burned brownies before, but I couldn't tell which were the black parts . I know my daughter would have brownies in any shape or form - she'd say who cares if they are burnt . I am an almond milk drinker too .

Sorry to hear these did not turn out. It happens, even when you are quite well versed in what you are doing. At least you can still eat the mistake...albeit not without SOME back end consequence...ahem... See what I did there?

I did see what you did there. Yes, there will be consequences, but at least I'll be exercising every day to compensate for the extra pounds and hopefully keep them to a minimum.

It's good you can say that about the brownies. I'm sure your other food is good too. I've seen your pictures and they look delicious.

It happens to everyone. I don't like to cook, but I think I'm pretty good at preparing food, especially sweets, but something happens to burn me.

@Nevena83 You need a new good pair of oven mitts so you don't burn yourself.

You could use them to make some kind of chocolate trifle : ) I just made a mincemeat cake today, which is super quick and easy. However it uses half a jar of mincemeat and I had previously used the first half of the jar a while ago, so this half had been in the fridge for some weeks. I think it had started to ferment a little bit. The cake turned out OK, but I wasn't quite comfortable enough about it to offer it to any visitors!

I put them in the freezer individually wrapped. They're not bad once they thaw. I didn't think about trifle. I'm sure it had an interesting taste. I think I've had mincemeat once. It was good.

@just4him I thought it tasted a little bit odd when it was still warm, but once it had cooled it was fine.

Thank you. Yes, they're good. I put them in the freezer and eat one at a time. I still have almost a full pan of them left in the freezer. Good to know I'm not alone.

@just4him That does not mean that you are a bad baker because the brownies did not turn out. I am sure many times they turned out good. Mistakes happen. I am not great at cooking for baking but have had things turn out good or have not turned out good.

You're right. I'm an excellent baker and cook. I put them in the freezer and eat one at a time. Out of sight, out of mind, they should last a long time. They're still good, even if they are a bit hard on the edges. It's good your food turns out well.

@just4him My food does not always turn out good but it is fine for me. I buy things and they do last a long time too. Now, not sure of our situation so not sure about buying things. I can buy things we can take with us but waiting a little bit to see. I am glad you are an excellent baker and cook. Things happen where something you normally make that turns out fine most of the time has that one time it does not work out. That happens.

Heavens yes unfortunately. I recently was making my apple cobbler. Had stove a bit too high, and apple pieces got a bit over singed. It happens to the best of us.

For me, it's more towards adding too much of something. Once I added too much soda bicarbonate. The cake tasted like paracetamol.
