Buttermilk Drop Cakes

I made a mistake cooking…..And it ended up being great!!! I love when this happens!!!!! 9 out of 10 times you end up with having to throw out the whole batch, especially when it is baking. I am not a good baker.

You have to be precise with it and I am not one of those cooks. I like to throw stuff in it and add lib to my cooking. I like to be spontaneous and creative when it comes to what I do in the kitchen. Throw on some music, pour a glass of wine or tea, and do what feels good.

Baking is way more accurate and precise and I don’t like it. Probably because its not forgiving and requires way more perfection than I can ever be. Too much exact math. I like geometry because you can get the right answer by doing it different ways. I like words cause you can put a paragraph together many different ways.

Anyway here is my mess up and the recipe. The original recipe was suppose to be a syrup and it ended up clumpy. Instead of throwing it out I added flour and made buttermilk cakes. Perfect with Joanna Gaines recipes for freezer jams.

Amazing Buttermilk Syrup

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

Your suppose to add the vanilla and baking powder after slowly stirring on stove but I added it all at once and I think thats what made it clumpy. it was still good but I didn’t stir continuously either.

Add flour after this to a consistency of drop biscuits and Putin oven at 400 for about 12 min.

Delicious!! also amazing for substitute cake for strawberry shortcake.
