This week I prepared Oola-la French Toast. I recently broke my ankle so I had to have some help in the kitchen this week. My dad actually did the bulk of the work. This was an interesting recipe. I rate it at Padawan level. I will post the pictures in the order that the steps were in the book. Personally, i felt that some of the steps were out of order. I will get into that afterwards.
Here are the ingredients
Place everything except the bread and butter in a bowl
and whisk together.
Pour into a shallow bowl
The next step in the book is to melt the butter in a pan. This is where the order doesn't make sense. It should have told you to get the pan and butter hot before putting the bread in the mixture, because if you don't then the bread soaks up too much of the liquid and it doesn't work.
Now for the review, I am going to give it two ratings this week, one for taste and one for the actual recipe.
The french toast tasted great, if not a little greasy. (Normally you use oil, not butter to cook french toast) I give the flavor of the the recipe:

It is time to continue my journey. This week I made C3-PO Pancakes, which are just pancakes with pineapple rings in the middle. I would say this is padawan difficulty. It wasn't too hard but it does take some timing and prep.
Start out with the ingredients and pre-heat the oven to 250
Then once again, melt some butter (unsalted this time)
As it melts, put all of the dry ingredients in a bowl
and mix them together with a wooden spoon
and whisk until well blended. Then slowly add the mixed wet ingredients into the dry.
Put a skillet on the stove, brush melted butter onto the pan and turn the stove on. Measure out 4 tablespoons of the batter onto the hot skillet.
When it is done on the first side place a ring of pineapple in the middle
and flip it over. When it is finished put it in the oven and finish the rest of the pancakes.
Look, It's lopsided C3-PO
and all his friends.
This one kinda looks more like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle than C3-PO
Now, not being a fan of pineapple myself, I felt that I wouldn't be able to rate this without being bias.
Instead, I asked my parents to rate it for me. They agreed that it deserved a rating of
Next week is Oola-la French Toast. Until then, May the Force be with you.

The First step was to preheat the oven and grease a baking sheet with butter. Easy enough. Then you are to melt butter in a pan. Kinda stupid pic but it should look like this.
After that unroll a can of pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface and brush the melted butter over the dough.
Then mix a lot of cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl.
Then sprinkle the mixture all over the butterd dough.
Looks pretty doesn't it?
After that, roll it into a log and cut the log into one inch pieces.
Place them on the baking sheet
and bake them for twenty minutes.
While the Danish Dos are baking it's time to make the icing. Place milk and confectioners sugar into a bowl and mix with a spoon until you have a gooey mixture. Mix in the vanilla extract and it should look like
After they are done baking they look like this.
Then you add the icing using a butter knife.
And just like that you're done!
Can you tell which ones are mine?
Like my new hairdo? I don't pull it off as well as Carrie Fisher.
I really enjoyed making thie recipe. It was simple and tasted great. I give this
Thanks for reading. Next weeks recipe is C-3PO pancakes.
Until next time, May the Force be with you.
