OMG! Not again! I modified a little, decided to add a little more flour into the mixture , about almost a cup more ( I wonder if it would still taste the same ) and yet I still could not get 'the' dough.
Twice! but I could not give up cos my customer was coming over in the evening for the BCT . I repeated the process, took half a block of butter from the fridge and started measuring all the other ingredients , just when I was about to take the flour, I noticed something else, there were two packets of flour , one with 'rose flour' written on the label and the other 'sponge mix flour'. and it hit me! I had been using the sponge mix flour and no wonder Stevie Wonder that I could not get the right dough! Silly me! that should teach me a lesson to read the labels every time
