When you notice you’ve made a mistake in cooking, what do you do?
Stop there and start over?
Keep going with a hope to make it what it is supposed to be?
I usually follow 2 until it’s a critical mistake. And this is what happened following 2 and it turned out an accidentally yummy snack.
Since I still had some pumpkin left, I wanted to make cute little baked sweet potatoes like snacks for my afternoon tea, but my pumpkin contained too much moisture. To make it solid, the first thing I came up with was flour. Sprinkling…sprinkling…ummm, something must be wrong. It got sticky and never kept standing like I thought it would be.
After 20 min of trying, the idea of throwing away hit my mind, but by thinking about ingredients, I thought it’s just like muffin. I pushed away the devil living in my mind saying “throwing it away,” and 5 min later the dough was baked in an oven. Here is what I put in my muffin!
- 200g roasted pumpkin
- 5g butter
- teaspoon sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder
- About 5 tablespoon all purpose flour
- ¼ cup almond milk
- Preheat an oven to 375°F.
- Mix all ingredients to make dough and transfer them in cupcake mold.
- Bake them in the oven for about 30min.
Hmm, well, it’s not too bad, especially who likes fudgy one, this cake was accidentally a yummy snack!
And, here is the critical mistake my dinner buddy made. He was kind enough to make cups of coffee the other day for both of us, and instead of sugar he put citric acid. Both were kept in pasta sauce jars I decorated, but they had labels on them(my excuse.) But both had similar designs and sugar and citric acids are both white powders(my dinner buddy’s excuse.)
Here is a lesson: human throats are made to refuse super sour coffee to pass.
