But when I have it, by golly, I USE IT.
Case in point: this “donut hole maker” I ordered. Stupid. The phrase “single-use appliance” comes to mind.
But then I got to thinking: if this thing could turn cake batter into globe-shaped cakes suitable for skewering, and could do so in the span of 5 minutes, then this stupid single-use appliance might serve a very useful purpose — namely, allowing the creation single-serving cake pops ON DEMAND.
So far, the device has been living up to its promise: I made ultra-low-carb red velvet cake batter (recipe coming soon!) and turned it into the cake “globes” that you see here.
Total time from batter to cake in mouth: 10 minutes.
Other uses of the device I shall be calling the “globe press” just to confuse and distract my enemies will include tako-yaki, the famous Japanese street food, for which you could easily replace the starch-based batter with something more keto-friendly.
What else should I try with this thing? Certainly I will be working on some high-glycemic foods as well, e.g. 5-minute dinner rolls you could make from frozen dough. I am all about making it super easy to apportion out exactly how much food you need while still being able to eat fresh food all of the time.
