Folks, I had been sitting on a new recipe for pancakes for weeks. It was lemon poppyseed pancakes, with applesauce! And buttermilk! And whole wheat flour! And vanilla and coconut sugar! I was stoked to give it a try this morning when I rolled my lazy ass out of bed around 10 a.m. I was not prepared for the disastrous results, which brings me to today’s Lunchtime Poll: what is your worst recipe disaster?
The problem with these pancakes was that they looked and smelled delicious and had all the outward signs of being amazeballs. I even made a homemade strawberry syrup to go over the top. So there I was, stack of golden deliciousness dribbled with strawberry syrup, and I nearly gag on my first bite. Too much lemon, everything is mushy, and – I swear to goodness – the flour tastes rancid. I promptly disposed of breakfast WHICH TOOK ME AN HOUR TO MAKE and ate yogurt instead. Not satisfying.
Suffice it to say, I need to hear your disasters. The ones you still curl up at night and think about.
