The title should really read Failures in Cooking, because that’s what this was. An absolute failure. I didn’t even take any pictures.
(My dinner was tasty, though. Here’s what that looked like:
Basically, everything with fresh dill.)
So. Back to dessert. I was using this recipe for Apple sharlotka from the lovely Deb of Smitten Kitchen. I always leave some margin of error with my cooking, since everything’s usually an experiment, and i’ve never had problems with Deb’s recipes before. I know I did something wrong, i’m just not quite sure what.
Everything was going well up until the baking part. In the oven for the requisite 60 minutes, then I pull it out and… there’s still liquidy parts at the bottom. Um, ok. I start putting it back into the oven to bake for additional 10 minute intervals. After FOUR of those (yup, that’s another 40 minutes), it still isn’t done and now the top is completely burnt. This is when I give up. Another time, perhaps after I invest in an oven thermometer…
