Ick. Yuck. Ewwie.
I’m working on my afternoon cake project, and I didn’t have a white cake mix. So no biggie, I figured I’d just make the one in the betty crocker cookbook. I had all the ingredients and got started. The shortening smelled kinda funny and was slightly discolored, but its not like I’m an expert on shortening, and I’ve never liked the smell, so I measured it and put it in. Stirred in the rest of the dry ingredients and milk. It all smelled kinda funny, so before I started cracking eggs, I stuck my finger in to take a taste. Ack! Ick! My tounge got this instant awful taste, and I spit it out in the sink. Even now, I haven’t gotten rid of the taste after eating some other stuff.
So now I’m pretty sure that my shortening was bad. I’ve had it forever, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. Cleaning the Kitchen Cupboard: Toss or Save?
Helpful reminder, remember this next time you are baking with shortening.
I think I’ll have E bring me a white cake mix on his way home.
Ick. My tounge is so nasty now!!!
