- Next time you make a quick bread, take poppy seed for example, I suggest that you not omit the baking powder (whether intentionally or not)--the bread will not rise or bake properly. (Think dense and doughy--yikes!)
- On a similar note, I recommend that you not accidentally triple the amount of baking soda--it will cause the unsuspecting guests to choke on their banana bread. It is important to point out that a teaspoon and a tablespoon are not equal.
- Lastly, it's always a good idea to make sure you check and double-check that 1) nothing is in the oven before you preheat it, and 2) that you actually turn the dial from preheat to bake after sliding that delicious cake into the oven.
