Oh that's too bad ! Would it have helped to have covered it with some custard ?

Cornflower

Custard would hide a multitude of sins and improve them greatly! Meanwhile, I've just spread one with some Nutella, and that made a big difference.

It looks like it has been one of those weeks! I burned the soup in the pressure cooker today - a thing I haven't done for years!

My baking failure was to replace the sugar in the crumble with salt. I was making a plum crumble, my husband's favourite. If I remember rightly the custand I made to go with the crumble turned out perfect, there wasn't a single lump. We couldn't think initally why it tasted 'funny' Kevin dutifully ate it not wanting to say anything particularly as I had made an effort to bake something. I told him he was daft to eat more than one spoonful. My custard has never been as nice as it was on that ocassion!

I once made the meringue for Quuen of Puddings without putting in the sugar. Spread it over the pudding and put it in the oven. Whilst cooking the "meringue" completely disappeared! Took me some time to work out where it had gone!

Cornflower

Burnt soup, salt in the crumble, sugarless meringue - we're all human!
