Q: So, what happens if I just go ahead and stick these banana muffins in the oven...

...even though I accidentally doubled the number of eggs (and didn't change anything else)?

A: I get delicious muffins with a light texture and a smooth, teeny-tiny crumb.

And to think there was a time I would have declared the muffins ruined and thrown the batter away.

There's some kind of life lesson here about creative risk-taking, but I think I'll just leave that alone and be happy I know a way to make my banana bread recipe work better as muffins.

  1. Do you remember when Ken Klostermeyer used to say that anyone could do art when it worked (he was talking specifically about pottery, but it applies to may other fields); but it took a pro to make it work when things went wrong?
    That's obviously a paraphrase, but it gets the gist, I think. We all make mistakes. But when we learn to use the mistakes, rather than throw them ou;, we're on our way to maturity.
    Loved the comment.
