I've mentioned previously that when I bake, I do a lot of it at once. For example, I will start the bread and while I wait for the two rising stages, I make cookie dough. Once the bread is in the pan, the cookies are baked. Cookies as in more than one kind.
This morning I was doing one of my favourite and most frequent made cookies. The recipe calls for 2 cups of raisins to be boiled for 5 minutes in a cup of water. I put that on while having breakfast.
The mixture cooled while I was doing bread and the other cookies. As I was adding the flour and other ingredients to the raisin cookies, I thought the dough looked a bit runny. Uh Oh. I reversed the directions and did 1 cup of raisins in 2 cups of water.
I put the batter in the fridge for a while so it would cool and set a bit before cooking. They didn't turn out to bad. A bit softer than usual but still tasty.
I probably shouldn't try to multi task when baking but it is likely too late to change habits now. I tend to always be doing two or three things at the same time no matter what it is. I am not good at waiting while something does whatever it is supposed to do.
Everything is done except for dishes and I am tired so will do some writing before finishing up. I need to get my next magazine article written. I was mentally doing that while cooking so it shouldn't take long.
