Recipe Mistakes

Recipe Mistakes:

If it’s not the ingredients or the oven, it could be human error that’s the issue. Let’s go right to the heart of the matter and investigate the source of the problem: the recipe.


  • If you doubled the recipe, check to see if you accidentally forgot to multiply one of the ingredients.
  • If you substituted ingredients and the recipe flopped, I’d say revert back to the original recipe or look for a different recipe that’s closer to what you were hoping to achieve.
  • Always double check teaspoon and tablespoon measurements. They can be easily confused because of their similar abbreviations (tsp versus tbsp)
  • Did you add the ingredients in the proper order? Cause order matters!
  • If you are measuring multiple cups of an ingredient, don’t get distracted and lose count as to what number you’re on! If need be, write it down somewhere to keep track.
  • Sometimes it’s not your fault that a recipe flatout failed you; sometimes the recipe is just a dud. If you try and try and no matter what the recipe keeps giving you a hard time, find a different recipe!
