I didn't bother taking a picture of my embarrassingly dark pancakes but they were some of the tastiest pancakes I have ever made. Most of the pancakes I make end up dense and flat so I was ecstatic when they turned out super fluffy and light! And even better my fussy toddler inhaled them so I will definitely be making them again, HEREs the recipe.
My first attempt at fruit leather involved a cookie sheet, saran wrap, applesauce and an oven at 275 for 30 mins then leave it in the oven for 8hrs til it dried. But after the saran wrap melted to the edge of the applesauce 15mins in I didn't care to continue. I know what you're thinking saran wrap and an oven, really? According to Super Baby Foods and a blog a can't remember it should have worked...bah. Take 2 involved a silpad, applesauce and an oven at 200 for 3hrs. Result - tasty fruit bits because I may or may not have forgotten about it and perhaps layered it on too thin. However since we all enjoyed the tasty fruit bits I decided to try, try again and while not perfect I avoided tasty fruit bits and was (gasp)able to roll my quasi fruit leather! It was still crisper at the edges than I'd like even with layering it thicker and I confess I may have forgotten about it again while sewing, oops. They're so easy to forget about as they don't let off that nice scorched cookie smell to remind you that the buzzer went off :). Next time I'm cooking down and pureeing some frozen fruit I have been neglecting in the freezer and hoping I will get a more even bake. I'm thinking the applesauce may be too watery. I'll keep you posted. Here are my results.
it rolled up!!! even with the crispy edges, woo hoo

food photographer I will never be!)
Here's hoping your next food foray turns out better than mine did!
Happy Make doing!!
Oh and by the way, remember my baby quilt? The binding is halfway done (told you it would take me forever). Sarah says it's because I'm so anal and while I'm not sure I appreciate that comment perhaps at times I do resemble it :). You might get to see the finished product depending on how much I can do tonight. Ta ta for now.
