I recently made a banana bread from a GF mix that was un-be-liev-able. It was so moist and yummy....just like a "real" loaf of banana bread. I was delighted to find they also sold a mix for pumpkin bread, plain bread, and a mix for apple pancakes/muffins. I bought 2 of each....that's how sold I was on the product.
This morning I was wandering around the kitchen after the guys left, trying to decide what to fix for myself for breakfast, and I decided on the apple pancakes.
I start mixing up the pancake mix and was a little disappointed that I couldn't detect the apple smell, but decided to withhold judgment until I actually tried them.
I got my skillet ready and went to scoop up some of the mix. Wow...it seems awfully thick. I don't really care for pancakes that are 3" tall. hhhmmm....let's try adding more milk.
After adding 3/4 of a cup more of milk they seemed better, but my excitement was dwindling. It got worse as they didn't set up like pancakes would. Flipping them was a nightmare and they stuck to the griddle horribly, and tasting them was equally disappointing. Blech!
While the banana bread mix was a hit, these were obviously a miss, and I was sorry I had purchased 2 packages.
I cleaned up the kitchen and grabbed the pancake mix package to throw away....and that's when I saw the big "oops". By mistake, I had grabbed the plain bread package mix out of the pantry instead of the pancake mix.
I laughed at what I'm sure is something only I would do, and then I laughed harder at the thought of the look Jay will give me when he finds out. They say it's good to laugh at yourself. Well, if I could earn money by doing that, I'd be a millionaire, because goodness knows I get the opportunity to do it often.
Ok, excitement was over, but I was still hungry. Do I reach for the right package? Nah, by then my interest in cooking anything was over. I reach for the box of corn chex and go check my emails instead.
