Unfortunately, well done.

It was my own fault.

My mind has been in a million places lately, and I ignored my better judgment and kept this week's Tuesday's With Dorie recipe from Kelly of Baking With the Boys in the oven for quite a bit longer than I should have. By now I should have learned to check cakes far earlier than recommended in a recipe sometimes, but I was neglectful this week, and it showed.

What could have been a resoundingly perfect, delectable slice of bread, according to this week's Ps & Qs was just "okay" in my book. The edges were rather hard, and the innards didn't taste particularly strong of mango, but I'm sure I kept the loaf in the oven for too long. Those moist bits surrounding the fruit always throw me off!!! The taste wasn't bad at all, and I didn't think there was too much ginger, but I'm crossing my fingers that a day tightly wrapped on the counter will soften up the crust and deepen the flavors.

Only time will tell...


  1. Mine was a bit well done too the first time around, but it was still tasty! I'm sure you'll like it better today!

  2. Sorry this one got away from you! I always set a timer because I have the attention span of a 2 year old.

  3. Well, I hope that it did work out for you and that the bread moistened up a bit. Sorry it didn't work out, though. Hang in there!

  4. Multi tasking can be hard sometimes. Hope it turned out in the end.
