Just to show you that I really am
an idiot the hectic eclectic girl, I’m going to tell you a story…
It’s a story about a girl who got an awesome bread cookbook for Christmas, and who was ready to try a recipe RIGHT NOW! Can you guess who this girl was? And in
my her excitement and haste to make this recipe, I she somehow missed the fact that it called for POWDERED milk. AND in my her excitement and haste to make this recipe, I she somehow missed the fact that it called for powdered milk, AFTER I she had already added the water, and when it was too late to somehow slip it into the sponge (where the water went).
me this unfortunate girl, searching around the kitchen for something that resembles POWDERED MILK (which was not, of course, in the house)… and then I had an idea (oh, come on – I know you know it’s me!) – I have some Carnation Instant Breakfast in the pantry! It’s mostly milk, right? It was even vanilla flavored! So I added it, instead of the prescribed milk, and voila, BREAD! It was actually really good – and you couldn’t even tell that I had gone crazy with the instant breakfast!
So take heart! You, too, can make
random substitutions intentional adjustments to your recipes successfully!
