How much vinegar?

My Mom was preparing for a little dinner party and was falling behind.  So, she gave me the easy task of making some small spice cake while she prepared the other desserts.  It was a box mix and all I had to do was put in eggs, water and 1 T. vinegar.  I think it was a spice cake... I accidentally switched the measurements, putting in 1 T. of water and 1 cup of vinegar.  We even thought we smelt the vingear as it was baking.  The adults were drinking coffee and I proudly handed out slices of my cake.  The looks on their faces when they took a bite was unforgetable!  I was so embarrassed!  I've since learned to check and double check measurements and ingredients.

It's easy to reverse amounts of ingredients when cooking or baking.  Doing a double check usually helps.

It sure makes a lot of sense to check and recheck the ingredients.

I am more likely to leave out an ingredient than to switch them.  The results have ranged from "it is not quite right" to AGGGGHHHH!  But I have seen stranger things in recipes than vinegar.  Sometimes I wonder how anyone ever tried some of the combinations I see that very first time.

Cute story.  Yes, it is a good idea to check and recheck ingredients and amounts. I do that all the time.  Helps to avoid problems.
