Well, I've always believed that it's easier to learn from others mistakes so I thought I'd give you such an opportunity.
I'm real giving in that way. You're welcome.
So, without further rambling, I give you today's "don't try this at home" recipe:
Egg Free Crepes
To begin, I want to state that I'm not so much of an idiot that I didn't realize that the base of a crepe is egg. However, being as I'm allergic to eggs I wanted to see if I could make something that I've missed in my current egg-less state.
Do NOT take:
4 tablespoons of ground flax, mixing it with 12 tablespoons of water to substitute for 4 eggs and mix with:
dash of salt
4 tablespoons of sugar
1 cup of flour
1 cup of milk
1/3 cup of melted butter
Mixing in order and then baking in a round skillet 1/4 cup at a time.
If you do you will inevitably:
- feel awful about wasting 1/3 a cup of butter that is sinfully expensive right now.
- have to throw out a bowl full of messy goop.
- have three children who are still hungry and are letting you know but coming into the kitchen every minute to check on the status of breakfast.
- settle on cold cereal.
- be sad that you can't have crepes.
P.S. I have had great success in using flax meal mixed with water as an egg substitute in baked goods. Crepes do not count as baked goods. Amen.
