Forgot to put in the vanilla

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm baking a cake....now, it's actually in the oven, I just remembered that I forgot to add the vanilla, is there any way that I can fix this or did I just waste my ingredients on....a mess.....HELP!!!

It shouldn't affect the way it bakes...just level a bit off when it comes out and taste it, that way you can find out if it will do or not.

Hate when that happens! One time I was doubling a batch and forgot to double one of the ingredients and had to throw the whole thing out. Grr.

hiya missnnaction,
I have an idea, how about making a soaking syrup with the vanilla in it and soak the cake when it comes out of the oven. I think they have a recipe here onsite for it.

Thank you both for your responses...for the soaking syrup should I do it when the cake is still warm or does it matter....

O.K..MrsMissey..they cooled for a few minutes and I've flipped them out of the pans...I tasted a little and it seems to be just fine...I've never left the flavoring out before so...I guess I kind of panicked.....I'll taste them again tomorrow after they have rested to make sure...but, if I need to I will lace them with the simple syrup....Thanks again for the responses/advice... icon_smile.gif

Phoov...Maybe it's because of the season..there is just so much going on in our homes preparing for the Holidays, simple things that we do so often just seem to slip our minds.

I've done this before too!! lol A few times, actually... icon_rolleyes.gif You can add a simple syrup to it tomorrow if you like. But something I learned is that either the cake or the syrup needs to be warm...it soaks in better that way. Since your cakes will be cooled already, I would make the syrup, then let it cool down some & add a little vanilla to it ( or whatever flavor you want it to be). But brush your cake with it while it's still warm, not piping hot, but nice & warm. My experience - cool simple syrup brushed onto an already cooled cake...it just kind of sits there on the cake some...doesn't really soak down into it. Good luck with it...let us know what you did & how it turned out! icon_smile.gif

I forgot baking powder last night in a double batch of cookies. I had already rolled them out between parchment paper and put them in the fridge when I looked over at the baking powder can.

I had to dump all the dough back into the bowl and mix in the B.P. and roll them all out again. Totally pissed myself off.

The cake turned out great ..even without the vanilla...I still laced the layers with a little Disorrono flavored simple syrup just to be safe...The cake is a version of my chocolate hazelnut cake...I used the almonds and almond liquors instead......Thanks again everyone for the advice...
