Mistake Muffins

I'm sure somebody out there in blog land has made a baking mistake before.  Surely.
My HH is working at home today so I decided to make breakfast. I tried something new and made Coffee Cake Muffins from my trusty old Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. I wasn't paying very close attention. Most of my staples are in coordinating Tupperware containers so they all look alike, except for the little label.  So, when I was to put in 2 tsps of baking powder I managed to put in two teaspoons of salt instead. YIKES! I wondered why the baking powder looked funny. Thing is, salt looks just like the sugar I had just added.  So, instead of throwing it all away, I scooped out the sugar without taking out the flour. Tricky, I know! I added additional sugar minus a smidge and didn't put any salt in at all. They actually turned out great. That NEVER happens after making a mistake. So, all was well at breakfast. What do you make for breakfast?
