DO NOT USE SELF RISING FLOUR WHEN BAKING UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO.....So I grabbed the container with the Self-Rising flour INSTEAD of the regular flour and I still added baking soda (because I thought I was using regular flour) and all of the sudden I hear stuff happening in my oven and peer in to watch the banana bread explode, then sink into itself. UGH. Little bits of dough caught on fire and then the smoke detector went off....there was a haze of smoke collecting on the ceiling of the entire first floor and the house smelled like smoke as did my subsequent baking attempt. Double ugh. I've since cleaned the oven twice and may need to a third time before attempting another baking project.
These are pictures of the banana bread after I got it out of the oven....I wish I was able to catch the fire...but didn't get to the camera fast enough. Note the dough encrusted on the outside of the baking dishes. Seriously had to use some muscle to scrape it off.
So THIS is what happens when you use self rising flour! I've always seen the warnings but had no idea the results were this extreme! COOL!
(Sorry!) I don't envy you having to clean the oven after that!
Whoa! That looks like some sort of home ec lab assignment! And it also kind of looks like your loaf pans got eaten by the banana bread!
Hm, I guess this will teach you to read the packet!
"Hm, so that's what happens when you give someone morphine AND codine..."
I would totally do this. I would. And then I'd blog about it.
How did it taste? :) I'm glad I 'm not the only one. Can you believe I once accidently used powdered sugar instead of flour in chocolate chip cookies?
Funny meditation story though. I'm going to meditate like that from now on!
So ummmm...... What is your recipe for the bread? You know, the one with the regular flour?
