Hello! I am new to the Forum but an email subscriber for about a year. I’m looking forward to being more active here as I delve deeper into my love of baking.
I like trying new recipes & techniques. I see that many of you have found recipes, altered them, fixed them, etc. and I was wondering what your process was. Most of you are probably past the trial & error stage of your baking evolution, but I’m at the bottom of the ladder…
For instance - if you are trying something new, do you make the entire recipe the first time or can you get away with only making 1/2 as a test run to save ingredients? Can you bake 1/2 the batter and then add something (ie: a little more of one ingredient) to see what the difference will be between the two. I understand that you shouldn’t/can’t add more baking powder to a completed mix, but do you understand what I’m asking?
How did you work through your errors? Did you try again in a few days or right after you discovered your disaster? I feel like I’m wasting alot of good ingredients by making sub-par things.
Thank you for your insight - I hope to learn alot from this Forum in the future =)
