Oooops!

There is going to be a bake sale this weekend on the condo property to raise money for the One Fund for those individuals injured by Boston Marathon bombing.

SO and I decided to contribute some baked goods for the sale. We had some old and tired bananas so she decided to make banana bread for her contribution. Typically she pre-measures the dry ingredients the day before then mixes and bakes early the next morning before I get up and before she goes to work.

This morning when I got up, I smelled something not typical of her banana bread. She met me at the bottom of the stairs to tell me there would be no banana bread for the bake sale.

I suspect she goofed in measuring the baking soda. Oh well, I've done worse. The oven needed cleaning anyways.

I'm going to make a lemon cake and apple squares. to contribute. That's on tap for after the oven is cleaned. One of the amputees is from our town.

Wow, what happened there?
It looks like it bubbled over.

Was there any saving it for your own use?

I think she used too much baking soda. There was no saving it.

She must have mixed up T for t.
I recall doing that for bread one time, using a tablespoon measure instead of a teaspoon and man was that some salty bread.

My first thought was, "How did she bake banana bread without the pan, and get it in that perfect loaf shape?". Then it came to me, there IS a pan under all that batter!

I've made worse messes.

She is a very good baker. She has the patience to take the time for fussy work where I don't. This was just a rare mistake. She suggested posting it with a title like banana goop or droop or similar.
