I made two new recipes this week, both of which were total disasters. The first was the Pillsbury Bake-off Winner, which is supposed to be simple. The slices of cookie dough (the kind you buy in a tube...I know!) were to be placed in mini-muffin pans and baked. The little tarts were dipped in chocolate, nuts, and filled with ice-cream. Sounds good, eh? Well, it was only as I was ready to pop the cookie dough in the pan that I realized I needed the mini-muffin pans, which I do not have. So I tried the regular size. It didn't work. The garbage can had a nice dessert.
Last night I wanted to make pumpkin pancakes. Bob wasn't going to be home until 9 PM and I thought pancakes would make a nice light dinner for me. After looking around on the internet I found two reasonable sounding recipes, one very simple and one more complicated. I printed out both and chose the simple one. Never in my life have I made pancakes that were completely inedible, so this was a first. I tried to eat one but it was bland and had a weird texture. I added spices to the batter and made a few more but that didn't improve them one bit. The good news was that the little bit I ate killed my appetite for the rest of the evening.
Does anyone know of a good pumpkin pancake recipe?
