My fist Thanksgiving flop ( literally). Im making a few things ahead of time. One of which are "Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake Brownies". Made the brownie mixture, pressed it into the pan, no problem. Made the cheese cake layer, topped the brownie layer, no problem. Put into the oven to bake, no problem.
This is where it gets ugly!
Took the brownies out of the oven to put the Pecan Streusel layer on and I lost grip. The pan fell out of my hand, 1/3 of the content in the pan fell through all 3 oven racks then on to the oven door and bottom of the oven . Still needed another 12 -15 minutes to bake. needless to say, I said a bunch of 4 letter cooking disaster words. House filling with smoke and that burnt sugar/ chocolate smell. I said a few More 4 letter words. Took all the racks out and thorough them into the sink. As my wife cooled and cleaned them ( and mumbling some 4 letter words, most likely directed at me), I was able to spatial the mess out of the oven. I then was able to kind of press/ even out the stuff in the pan to salvage what I could. Put the streusel on, and put it back in for final bake.
Ill try a piece once its cools down.
Just tasted its, appears I salvaged it ( I sample everything before I bring it to someones house. I even take a slice of pie or cake. I'd rather look rude than show. up with something that may give me a bad rap.)
