What's wrong here? Oh, I forgot to add the butter.
Are you sometimes on autopilot when baking. I must bake some sort of cobbler or crisp every week, and I do the recipe mostly by eye now. Not sure what was going on in my head here, but I made this whole cobbler, baked it in the oven, and then realized something was wrong. (Of course we have a cobbler recipe video here.)
The crust was just blah.
But it was time to go to dinner at the camp, and I was to bring dessert, and this was it. So I got out the propane torch and dropped some cubes of butter on top of what was supposed to be cobbler, melted the butter and toasted the topping.
It ended up being not bad, especially when ice cream was added. Just crunchy sweet stuff. Definitely a done is better than perfect moment. What have your forgotten ingredient incidents been?
