improvisation = new inventions

what i thought i was baking was not what i ended up with.
i had already altered the recipe to my liking (because i am creative and this is what i do).
when it came time to add the vanilla extract, i searched.

and searched.

there is NO vanilla extract. (yes, i couldnt believe it either)

however again.
i improvised. and used maple syrup.

ok so i add the maple syrup. moving right along.
i beat my egg whites (which were less than. ill admit that) but i add them.
and yet something is still missing....just that it thing.

so im looking around.

and behold. BANANA. score, banana added.


after the banana there was still something missing (like a crunch factor).
so then comes the cinnamon gram crackers. oh yes.

and after they were baked:

(so bear with me on this whole food photography thing, like i still learning)

oh and as for the recipe (SB style of course)

sweetened coconut flakes
sweetened condensed milk
maple syrup
egg whites (with a dash of salt)
cinnamon gram crackers

oven = 350 degrees.

add sweetened condensed milk, banana, gram crackers, maple syrup, and coconut flakes.

whip egg whites until soft peaks form.

fold in.

bake 10 - 12 minutes.
