cake or bake?Posted: September 29, 2011
After looking at this honeycrisp apple earlier today, I knew I wanted to make it the star of the “sweet” component for my breakfast for dinner.
I couldn’t decide between pancakes or a “bake” so I made both.
Rudy (the lab we are dog sitting) was drooling as he watched me make dinner. I may have shared a slice or two of apple with him… look at that face!
The end result: the bake and the pancake tasted EXACTLY the same. Both were good, but didn’t hold together well. I will definitely use oat FLOUR instead of oat and wheat BRAN next time I make this. It needs work, but here’s the recipe I created:
Apple cinnamon pancake (bake)
1 small apple, chopped into very small pieces
3 T wheat bran
1 T coconut flour
1 T oat bran
1/4 c. egg whites
1.5 T pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp stevia
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
dash of nutmeg
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. For “pancakes,” heat a large skillet over medium heat and place scoopfuls of batter into the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes on one side and flip, continue to cook for about 4 more minutes. For “bake,” spray 2 ramekins or small bowls with non-stick spray. Pour batter in and bake at 350 for 25 minutes, or until cooked through completely.
It made my kitchen smell realllllly yummy. But even I couldn’t finish all of it, since I also had to have the savory component in my dinner.
Hash made from mushroom, spinach, garlic, red onion, cherry tomato and yellow squash, runny egg on top. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Savory might have won out over sweet tonight.
Have you seen THIS???
AMAZING. Check out the texture!
It’s official. Quinoa really does make everything better.
