The Applesauce Donuts That Turned into Pancakes
In any event, I knew these wouldn't work very well as Krispy Kreme substitutes, but, at this stage, we will take what we can get! Nevertheless, once the first batch hit the oil to fry, it was obviously going to end in catastrophe. Since I used a lot of oat flour, I decided to salvage what I could by turning the rest of the batter into pancakes.
The result was a nice change from our regular pancakes and was sweet enough not to require syrup. Next week I will try these as waffles and see what I get!
3/4 c brown sugar
2 T vegetable oil
2 1/2 c oat flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
dash cinnamon and nutmeg
1/4 c rice milk or water
1 c apple sauce
1 t vanilla extract
Mix the first two ingredients until well blended. Combine dry ingredients and add alternately with rice milk. Then, stir in applesauce and vanilla.
I use my electric griddle to make these, but you could make them however you usually prefer to make pancakes.
Sift with powdered sugar and enjoy!
