I’m revisiting the Impossible Pie (coconut) recipe because I learnt something tuesday night, I learnt that you may want to make a recipe healthier but it’s not always possible to mess too much with the original recipe.
I thought I’d cut the butter/margerine portion of this recipe down ( I have already done this in my recipe notes) but it appears that it’s probably something I shouldn’t do again.
A) it made the custard portion of the dish watery,
B) I didn’t get that slight thickening of the flour for the base to appear,
So the upshot is that if I don’t get that slight base I’ve basically made a baked custard and I really don’t like a watery type of custard.
It still made up ok and everyone still ate it, the dish was empty … but it was not my best effort and I won’t do it again.
Do you keep notes on what you’ve changed on your recipe and if you’d make it again or not?
Yes, I write the changes on the recipe. If it’s in a book, a tick is put on the page for Yes, make it again. A cross is for NO, it’s awful. If it’s a page pulled from a magazine or handwritten of a piece of paper, it gets typed up, if it’s a winner. If not, it gets tossed in the bin.
