I attempted to bake a tea bread recipe that I've been really excited about this morning. Half way through I realized that I couldn't find my baking powder. Now I'm 99% sure that I picked up baking powder last time I went food shopping, but I couldn't seem to find it this morning. As I looked at hte baking soda I thought "how different can it really be? I might as well give it a try."
Yuck. The most disgusting bread is now sitting in the kitchen (as soon as I get up the energy I'll go take it to the garage and toss it out). Tomorrow I plan on giving the recipe a second try.
There just doesn't seem to be as much wiggle room in baking as there is in cooking. At least there isn't when, like me, you have no idea what you're doing!
