A Twitter user is sparking chaos on social media after sharing her “horrific” baking attempt.
Instead of a photogenic, sweet-looking loaf, Amry ended up with something … else. She shared her misfortune on Twitter, calling the effort “the world’s most failed banana bread.”
“This is what it looks like,” Amry added after posting a photo of the bread. “And it looks, and I can’t stress this enough, better than it tastes.”
Twitter users seemed to share Amry’s disappointed reaction, with commenters saying they were legitimately surprised to discover what food they were seeing.
“Your banana bread, not offense, looks like, and once again no offense, a brain with parasites in it,” one user wrote.
“Thought it was chicken,” another commented.
Amry later shared a photo of another Twitter user’s attempt at the same recipe — showing what she had hoped her final result would look like.
Oh I almost forgot to put some blame where it rightly belongs - on the tweep who shared their perfect banana bread, thereby making me think I could produce the same outcome if I used the same recipe. #TwitterShamingTimehttps://t.co/YBU6081FiWhttps://t.co/mgL4RqegJ4

Thanks to some helpful social media investigating, Twitter users worked with Amry to figure out what went wrong.
As it turned out, she had mixed up baking soda and baking powder, which may have contributed to the bread’s less than desirable texture. She also admitted to making several small substitutions — including substituting one of the recipe’s four bananas for some canned pumpkin.
But that didn’t stop Twitter users from completely grilling Amry on her cooking.
“This photo should come with a content warning,” one user wrote.
“I have seen baking fails before, but I am actually speechless,” another claimed.
Amry took the insults in stride though, and others were far more sympathetic. Many shared their own baking fails in what turned into a massive online commiseration.
I feel your pain! My own disaster of a banana cake/bread wanna be and let’s enjoy how it looks because the taste was more than horrific 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/f3mrA0Tk2j
