This past week I had planned to make some onion rings (for the first time) so I bought onions, flour and baking powder. I was going to attempt to cook some this evening and then I realized eggs was in the list of ingredients I needed. Big whoops, I forgot to buy eggs. So I decided to check out SuperCook – it’s a site that gives you a list of things you can do with the ingredients you have.
After I listed down a few baking-related items I have in the kitchen, one of the search results was polvoron. Polvoron is a Philippines delicacy which I really like. So I attempted to make it. Unfortunately, I left the flour on the cooking pan for too long so it over-toasted. I ended up with burnt polvoron. It tastes okay but it doesn’t really taste like polvoron…it actually tastes like cheesecake crust! So I sprinkled some over the custard I made the other day and we have a winner!
It’s always possible to turn a bad situation around!
