What did I do wrong?
Okay, I don't know what happened.
1. I followed the general directions. I used applesauce as suggested instead of oil, I did add chopped almonds to give it crunch, otherwise everything else was as directed.
2. After soaking the oatmeal overnight it didn't absorb all the milk, therefore the moisture. Was I suppose to drain off the milk after soaking the oatmeal overnight and before adding all the other ingredients?
3. I had to take them out of the muffin tin after baking them for 30 minutes, as instructed, put them on a cookie sheet, upside down and then back into the oven to cook more, after another 5-10 minutes they were better but still moist.
The flavor probably wasn't as strong as it should have been, since I had to drain off the milk and all the spices that were in the milk mixture. It wasn't too sweet which was okay, didn't want a lot of sweetness anyway.
I would like to make them again, but it's got to be better next time. I like the recipe was easy to put together just to mushy for my taste.
Can someone help me?
Pros: Good Flavor
Cons: Bottom of cake/muffin to mushy
