And this isn't even one of those situations where I can say, "Yeah, they looked pretty nasty, but man they tasted great!" They didn't. The only way to salvage these babies would have been to douse them in maple syrup. But my fourteen year old brother tried that, and it didn't even help. The sweet potato pancakes were mushy, tasteless, and boy were they ugly.
I made an apple topping to go with them, which turned out to be my breakfast instead of their heartier counterparts. I put some of the pancakes that didn't fall apart on the plate (but they still tasted bad, so they joined their brothers and sisters in the trash. I hate wasting food, but this was beyond repair.).
Anyway, the Cinnamon Apples were delicious and very simple to make. Here's how to do it:
Peel and slice 2 granny smith apples into small chunks. Heat enough ghee (clarified butter) to coat a pan. Place the apples in the pan, sprinkle heartily with cinnamon, and sautee until apples are soft (5-10 minutes).
Have you ever had any mishaps in the kitchen like this?
