My friend Elizabeth and I got together to make some cookies. She picked up some Betty Crocker instant cookie mixes for us to make. One of the mixes was the double chocolate chip. Sounds great, right?
Well, when I wasn’t looking, she poured in what she thought was 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. What you don’t know, is that she has a bad habit of using dry measuring cups for liquids.
I came over to look at the bowl and comment how thin the batter looks. I check to see how much oil she put in and that’s when she notices that she used a 1/3 dry measuring cup to measure the oil. She put in 2/3 cup oil (think it was 2 1/4 cups). I advised her to add about a cup of flour to the batter and bake it into brownies.
We put a ton of walnuts on half for her dad. They actually turned out decent enough. And we all lived happily ever after. The End
