I thought I’d make my recipe for Pancake Truffles again this morning.
This version had a sweet surprise in the middle, though!
Instead of a banana segment, I used a big, juicy strawberry in the center and shredded coconut on the outside. It was pretty much as delicious as I thought it would be, but the banana holds together in the oven better and results in a prettier truffle when you cut into it. 🙂
I leave you with my absolute favorite quote (it was even in our wedding program):
There is a desire within each of us, in the deep center of ourselves that we call our heart. We were born with it, it is never completely satisfied, and it never dies. We are often unaware of it, but it is always awake. It is the human desire for love. Every person in this earth yearns to love, to be loved, to know love. Our true identity, our reason for being, is to be found in this desire…love is the ‘why’ of life: why we are functioning at all, what we want to be efficient for… I am convinced [love] is the fundamental energy of the human spirit, the fuel on which we run, the wellspring of our vitality. And grace, which is the flowing, creative activity of love itself, is what makes all goodness possible. Love should come first; it should be the beginning of and the reason for everything.
I LOVE that quote!! How appropriate for your wedding program.
And great idea to use strawberries in the truffles. Those look delicious! Do the truffles keep you full for a while??
