If you follow my What I Ate Wednesday posts, you might have noticed that I have a thing for protein pancakes. When I need to eat a big breakfast, they are the perfect addition to my Shakeology because they are packed with nutrition and taste great!
Recently, I wanted to make a pancake, but I was out of eggs. Using my knowledge about egg and applesauce substitutions from my cupcake experiment, I decided to try to make my pancake with applesauce. Seems Logical.
I mixed everything as usual per this lovely recipe from SheRocks Fitness. Next, I heated a drop of coconut oil in the pan and waited for it to get hot.
As soon as I poured the batter into the pan, I knew something was wrong. There was WAY too much sizzle.
Maybe this is how you make a crepe… not sure. As you can see, it looks awful!
At this point, I am committed. I’m going to try to cook this thing because
Those are perfectly good ingredients that shouldn’t go to waste.
Finally, I pried the “pancake” out of the pan and tasted it.
It wasn’t a pancake, but it wasn’t bad either! It tasted like half apple fruit roll up and half warm cinnamon applesauce. Good Flavor. Strange Taste. Strange Look. Strange in general – but edible just this once.
The important thing is I tried something new and learned something.
Don’t substitute eggs and applesauce in pancakes unless maybe you add some flour too.
Do you have any “cooking gone wrong” stories?
