Anyone considering entering the “ugliest breakfast 2011” awards, don’t bother.
I’m a dead cert for the top prize…
They actually look like some sort of deep-fried pork crackling – but I promise they’re not 🙂
I had a brilliant night last night but had to get up early to do the horses so I hardly ate anything before I cycled up there, meaning just to turn them out and come back. But I ended up riding and faffing about so I didn’t get back till 10.30am.
I was always going to make pancakes but I was so hungry, I didn’t want any of yer flimsy crepes; I wanted fat, “meaty” buggers 🙂
I won’t post the recipe, yet, (see pictures!) but I used steamed butternut, pureed with cinnamon, part-ground oats, peanut flour, a flax egg, baking powder… and no extra liquid. Which could have been an error… the mixture tasted so good, I could have just eaten that but I plopped it into the pan and realised straight away, it wasn’t going to work.
But I persevered and at least got something…
Not quite ugly enough though, I feel. Hmm; what can I do about that…
Getting there! Banana and almond butter is a taste combination made in heaven. But it ain’t pretty. One more thing though:
Sprinkle some crumbled nutty crackers/cereal on the top and there ya have it; a truly revolting-looking, all-one-colour plate. Perfect.
It was SO good though. Just the cinnamon butternut puree was heaven in a bowl but add all the rest and you’ve got a winning taste combination.
I just need to work on the cooking but who worries about details like that?!
I’m off now to try and convince my blender it really wants to make coconut butter, although we really don’t seem to be agreeing on that one as yet – has anyone got any tips??
Have a great Sunday!
