Why is it.....

You can cook/bake the same thing for years and then suddenly it all goes t**s up for no apparent reason !

My brownies decided they would prefer to be cakes and my coffee cake had a change of heart too, it opted for "souffle and watch me sink".

Answers on a postcard please !!

why is it...

I wish I knew! This weekend I made 2 tried and tested recipes for fund raising coffee morning and both went wrong. The lemon drizzle cake stuck to the silicone - never, ever happened before, and lets not discuss the brownies.
They were still enjoyed but I now really feel for the contestants in The Great British Bake Off when they say "this has never happened before".

Why is it.....

My Gran always used to say that you could never make decent pastry when you felt unwell - & it seems to follow true. But yes, I guess we all have disaster days & usually when we are under pressure to get it right ...

why is it

I have disasters too. I think it's when I haven't baked for a while and get over confident, or I am in a hurry, so now I bake when it's quiet and take more care, reading the recipes over and only use recipes that are simple and fool proof for me
