I must share some very sad news.... I had yet another Pinterest failure. Instead of keeping this failure to myself- I decided to share it all with you. There are some very funny and witty blogs out there- Pintester and others that blog exclusively about Pinterest successes and failures.
I decided to test out the two ingredient pancake "pin" that is floating around out there. The premise for the recipe is easy- only two ingredients- bananas and eggs. You mash up one egg and banana together. You then fry it up in a pan like a pancake and presto!- you have two ingredient pancakes.
I am here to provide a pubic service to you all. These are not pancakes. They turn out kinda wet and soggy. Now I know that I would prefer to scramble my egg and eat a banana on the side. I can see how these "pancake imposters" appear to be fluffy. But, don't be fooled. They are not as fluffy and airy as the real thing. They do not taste like pancakes. They taste like mashed up bananas and eggs. Which I learned I do not like mixed together. Take note Gerber- banana and egg would not be a best seller.
I kinda feel duped. Like when someone told me spaghetti squash tastes just like spaghetti. Nope. It doesn't. It tastes like spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce on top. Which can be quite tasty, but does not taste like spaghetti.
So, I know that most blogs are filled with beautiful recipes and talk nothing of kitchen failures. But, I am a wanna-be blogger so I will keep it real here. I have many many failures in the kitchen. I also have made many recipes that were mediocre. But, I do love to share the recipes that did turn out delicious. And, I also feel obligated to tell you of the recipes that did not turn out at all. This is one of them. So next time you get a hankering for some pancakes- make some real ones please. Pancakes are meant to be fluffy, tender, buttery pillows of deliciousness. If you are worried about over indulging on the real thing- save them for the weekend. And eat the eggs and bananas (served separately- of course) during the week.
Saving the world from fake pancakes. No thanks is needed.
