I had such a spectacular baking fail last night that I just had to share.

Unless I was aiming for chewy chocolate pancakes, that is. Granted they taste fine, but as Mr. Cleaver said “they’re not cookies.”

So did I…

  1. use expired baking powder,
  2. over soften the butter,
  3. use too much liquid, or
  4. forget the eggs?

If you picked #2, you’re correct!!

I tried putting the dough in the fridge, but that didn’t help (something about the heating permanently changing the structure of the butter). So after two failed batches I decided that the remainder will find a new life as dough – maybe in some ice cream.
