last night i made blueberry scones. or rather, i tried to make blueberry scones. or rather, i made a terrible, terrible batch of blueberry scones. i got the recipe online and there was a typo in it. it called for 2 1/2 tablespoons of baking powder when really all it needed was 2 1/2 teaspoons. drat. i don't bake enough to have known that 2 1/2 tablespoons would be a ridiculous amount of baking powder. it was a very expensive mistake, as i had doubled the recipe. there was a lot of butter, several eggs, some milk, and not to mention the flour...
oh well. now i know.


  1. aw maaaaaaaan! I seem to remember a similar incident except it was cups confused with teaspoons. One laughing dad and some salty salty potatoes

  2. Eeeeww. I'd probably like those potatoes. I like salt. Tried to comment on this before, T, but it wouldn't let me! I wanted to be first!!! Sorry to hear about your scones. That sucks.

  3. Couldn't get it go go before (the blog comment). I said the way you learn to cook and bake is by experience. So keep on truckin'
