    I was making a new york-style cheese cake and realized I'd forgotted to
    add the sour cream to the cream cheese mixture. I grabbed it back out
    of the oven and gingerly stirred in the sour cream, trying to be careful
    not to disturb the crumb crust. My husband heard me muttering to myself
    in annoyance so I was forced to confess what had happened, but if I
    hadn't you'd have never been able to tell. After being baked and
    chilled, if you looked very closely at a slice you could see a slight
    difference in color near the outer edges where the sour cream hadn't
    gotten stirred in but the texture and flavor were unaffected.

    realized it after my brownies had been in the oven for ten minutes.
    They turned out a bit chewier, but that's the way I like 'em. I was
    expecting I don't know what.

    That reminds me of the time I was baking pumpkin pies the evening
    before Thanksgiving, and forgot the eggs until the pies were in the
    oven for 10 minutes. I began frantically beating the eggs, and trying
    to stir them into the pie filling, while they were still baking. It
    was hillarious, but it worked:-)

    Pies are so much more forgiving than cakes!

    Absolutely pies are more forgiving. I would have never gotten away
    with that, had it been a cake!

    A few years ago I did a similar thing with a baked cheese cake. I forgot
    the sugar and didn't realize it until after it had been in the oven for
    a few minutes. I took the now warms plate out of the oven, sprinkled the
    sugar evenly over the top and then used a hand blander to beat it into
    the cake.

    It worked. The cake turned out okay.

    I also forgot to mix the chopped walnuts into the batter til after it
    was in the pan. Those I dumped on top, then pushed em in with a
    wooden chopstick.

    What? Me, forgetful?

    I've seen recipes where you have to wait to add the nuts. I'm sure
    you did it on purpose that way!

    I bet those would taste good on top of some ice cream!
