unlucky baking experience!
While I was chatting with my friend today at around 5:30P.M. she told me that she was hungry and hadn’t had anything to eat all day and that there wasn’t any food at home (she lives alone with her sister). So I told her to come over and have lasagna, but she said she didn’t like it. Then I told her that I was planning on making cookies (Kinzi’s sugar cookies as a matter of fact) and she got so excited. I told her to come over and have some. She said she’d come over in half an hour so I ran downstairs to make the cookies.
I have been wanting to make these cookies ever since I got the recipe from Kinzi's blog, but for some reason something always gets in the way. I tried to make them a few days ago but I couldn't find baking soda. Anyway, I got everything out and started mixing the ingredients together. You have to make two separate mixtures and then add them together. I had finished the first mixture and was almost done with the second one when I realized that we had run out of flour!! I was like "Oh no! Mshan Allah la2!!" anyway I fixed that (don't ask how lol) but then I realized that the cookie dough has to be refrigerated for a couple of hours. I didn't have that much time since she was probably already on the way by then, so I decided to bake a cake to serve my friend instead of the cookies.
My friend arrived before I could bake the cake and I explained to her what had happened and she didn't mind having cake instead. She was hungry and would settle for anything! So I made her a sandwich to eat until I finished baking the cake. I made the cake and put it in the oven. I set the oven timer for 45 minutes and we went upstairs to sit in my room. 45 minutes later we went down to the kitchen to check on the cake and to my surprise it wasn't done yet! It's not the first time I bake a cake so I could tell that something was wrong. After 45 minutes the cake should have been fully baked and reaching to the rim of the pan, yet for some reason the pan was only half full. That's when I realized that we had run out of gas for the oven!!! Unbelievable! The poor girl had in mind that she'd get some cookies or cake and nothing was going as planned! Can you believe it?! What are the odds?! I can't believe how unlucky today was. And it really sucks when things you bake go wrong! I had my mom change the gas and the cake is baking as I type. I hope it turns out alright. Bad news is that my friend had to leave because she had a friend coming over. Worst of all is that her sister was expecting her to bring her back some cookies. Poor thing. I really feel bad. Her sister always makes me fettuccine (she knows I love it). Maybe I'll send them some tomorrow if the cookies and cake turn out alright.
The cookie dough has been in the fridge for almost 2 hours. So I'm gonna go bake them soon. Inshallah they'll turn out good. Wish me luck!
