Recipe: Found on Stumbleupon
How I fared: Horribly
Yes. This round definitely earned an F. Following directions was easy, to start with, but putting it into action was terrible. Not only was I frustrated but there were several uses of inappropriate language.
It sort of went like this:
Hubs: I'll start the bacon and eggs.
Me: *nods* *furrows brow* *pours batter* Dammit!
Hubs: What happened?
Me: Look... *we both stare at half the batter in the pan the other half out*
By the fourth try I was able to keep the batter in the pan, add cinnamon mix (with a plastic spoon) - bag instructions they offered blew this beginner out of the water.
Thoughts: Maybe next time I'll just add the cinnamon to the batter... it'd probably taste the same.
So, I'm sure you're all interested in a photo.
Here is what it was supposed to look like...
Here is what mine looks like. Clearly the swirl is not my area of expertise... and yes, this was with the spoon (it was difficult regardless). You also don't see much cinnamon on the finished product (the other side was awful), but you can see it is indeed a pancake.
Looks - Like a pancake (though my kitchen was atrocious)
Taste - Delicious
Question: Have you had any beginner mishaps?
