Homekeeper Blooper of the Week:
We were out of all baked goods by last evening so I rolled up my sleeves to bake some bread after dinner. All went smoothly until the dough was ready to go into the oven. It was pre-heated to 350 F and in went the two loaves. I set the timer for 15 minutes (about 2/3 of the way done, just to check the browning on top.) Well, when I took a peak at them at 12 minutes, the tops were looking like the bread was almost done! Huh?!? I took out one loaf and flipped it out onto my mitted hand. White and soft!
Catasterous! [Disastrous + Catastrophy = Catasterous! You heard it here first, folks. ]
The oven was clicked over to ‘Broil’, not ‘Bake’. I quickly covered the tops with aluminum foil to stop the browning process and turned the oven back to ‘Bake’, hoping that would rescue my poor bread. Sure enough, as the oven heated from below, the bread bottoms got toasty and it baked all the way through! Sweet success!
Have any Homekeeper Bloopers you’d like to share, and how you rescued the situation?
