2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
¼ Teaspoon Salt
¾ Cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
2/3 Cup Sugar
2 Large Eggs
2/3 Cups Mango Yogurt
2 Teaspoons Pure Mango Extract (I used 1/2 t mango oil)
1 Cup Fresh Mango Puree
If you missed an ingredient it can do any number of things to your final product.
Your best bet it to remake your recipe the correct way and see what happens. When I first started baking I pre-measured all my ingredients into little cups/bowls like they do on cooking shows so I didn't forget anything, cuz I used to forget stuff all the time!
I also underbaked stuff when I 1st started, and yes I popped stuff back in the oven. The raw will finish cooking but the cooked parts dry out.
