This has been a very fun recipe to work on, trying to nail down which flavors that would make this authentic, but also translate well in to a vape recipe.
The first thing that had to be done was get the crepe/pancake right. WF Crepe SC was a given choice here, as it has that light and soft dough note, everything you want from a pancake/crepe flavor. By itself it is a bit too light though, especially when you’re throwing a lot of other powerful flavors on top.
I know that @foment_life used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl in combination with WF SC Crepe in his Breakfast of the Gods recipe, something which is perfect here – as the Crepe needs a bit more dough to stand out, and we also need that cinnamon spice for the filling.
I did experiment a bit with other combinations such as LB Belgian Waffle (which also has a slight cinnamon note), and FLV Rich Cinnamon, but I found none of them to be as good as the WF Crepe/CAP CDS combo, as the cinnamon note should be “just there” to make it as authentic as possible. CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl v2 can be used as sub for the v1, I have tried with both and I honestly don't taste any significant difference.
Next up was trying to find a good flavor to replicate the palm sugar syrup, which is used both for the filling and garnish. WF SC Molasses turned out to be the best choice here, I’m not 100% convinced it’s the most authentic, but it is however by far the most yummy, as it has that brown sugar note that plays great with the coconut. The other flavor I experimented with was VT Golden Syrup, but the caramel note in there makes the recipe way too sweet to enjoy for longer periods of time. I wouldn't recommend trying to sub the molasses, it's very unique, especially how it interacts with the sweet coconut notes.
Third, the coconut BOMB. Look at the picture and you’ll see how coconut heavy this recipe is. The whole filling is just heaps and heaps of grated coconut, so the coconut needs to be a very good tasting main note, and also have a great body to it. This has been by far the toughest part of the recipe, as the very flaky texture is hard to achieve, so you just have to settle for how yummy they are.
My conclusion of this is that you can actually use 2 different combinations, but there is 1 flavor that has to be in there no matter what – FLV Coconut. It’s the only flavor that really has that thick (almost) grated coconut feel to it. It’s extremely potent, so use it with caution. DO NOT KNUCKLE TEST THIS FLAVOR!!!!
The second flavor that I landed on is FA Coconut, I think it also has some of the same qualities as FLV Coconut, it’s a bit flakey but also brings some of a milky note. Together they make a great thick and very yummy coconut flavor.
The third flavor that can be used as a sub for FA Coconut is FLV Sweet Coconut. This is by no means a bad sub at all, and I think some people might even prefer it. I don’t though, because I don’t think it has the same body, so not as authentic. I’d recommend using FLV Sweet Coconut at 1.5% if you plan on subbing.
VT Dessicated Coconut could maybe also be an option for the cocobomb, I'm not sure it would taste better, but maybe more authentic. It is was out of stock on Chefs so no way for me to get it just yet.
Last, I’d say the lime could be left out, but I feel it does precisely the same job as the lime in the real dish – by adding a strong contrasting note it elevates the other flavors. I also think it makes for a much more pleasant vape, as the other flavors can become a bit boring in the longer run. VT Shisha Lime was the best choice as it doesn’t water down the other flavors as much as other limes.
I did also experiment a lot with different dragon fruits, as it’s a common topping to use. I did however realize that I had to scrap that idea, as there was just no way to make this possible as it’s such a “weak” flavor.
So this recipe was inspired immediately after smelling Country Apple (PUR) for the first time. It is just a perfect baked apple with plenty of sweet caramel goodness. After months of development I am finally satisfied with this recipe. To me it represents the profile very well. Mix and Enjoy!
P.S. I have a string of Ice Cream recipes that I am nearly finished with so look out for those if you're a fan of those profiles.
County Apple (PUR): The star of the show! This is without a doubt my favorite apple flavor and it is the perfect fit for this profile. At 3% it is perfectly incorporated throughout the whole vape. Pairs perfectly with Cinnamon Danish Swirl to give it an apple pie profile.
Cinnamon Danish Swirl (CAP): This flavor is used to give this recipe it's apple pie character. Works well with Country Apple and gives it some spice & caramel notes.
Cookie (FA): Gives this a sort of pie crumble taste. Lacks the texture I was looking for. I'll have to revisit that later.
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (TFA): The main Ice Cream flavor for this recipe. Everyone loves VBIC and now I understand why. Though I do find some off-notes with it at high percentages.
Vanilla Ice Cream (LB): Used in conjunction with VBIC (TFA) to give it more creamy texture.
French Vanilla Icecream (HS): Adds just a bit more cream and just enough butter to enhance the apple pie.
WS-23: Cooling agent. Feel free to leave out if you prefer.
My remix of ID10-T's Simple Sugar Cookie
Lowered the percentages a bit of the CAP VC and SC from the original and added a bit of cinnamon and some of that awesome TFA Banana Nut Bread to make a Banana Sugar Cookie that falls somewhere between an original sugar cookie and a banana arrowroot biscuit
Nice off the shake but fills out more after a week or 2
This is a Swedish style Cinnamon Apple Cake, which is usually made with yellow cake and served with vanilla custard.
Don't think the flavors needs much explaining, but I'll do it briefly.
FA Fuji crisp, jucy and very realistic apple flavor, at 2% is just the right amount to get that feel of small chopped apple pieces in the cake.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl and JF Yellow Cake serves as the cake base, with CDS bringing the cinnamon spice that we all know and love pairs beautifully with apple.
DFS Holy Vanilla is a an amazing rich, creamy and eggy vanilla flavor that emulates the traditional vanilla custard and blends perfect together with the whole mix.
Best give it a few days of steep to let the yellow cake work it's magic, so you get that great fluffy cake texture.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl v2 can be used as a sub for the v1, both taste real good in this recipie. If you don't have JF Yellow Cake, FW can be used instead, even tho I wouldn't recommend using that flavor at all.
To get the real "fika" experience, this is best vaped together with a cup of coffee.
Well here it goes my second recipe.
Thanks in advance for all of you that takes the time to try them.
As a new mixer, sometimes is hard for me to get the flavors needed for a lot of recipes here on ATF and also because I live in Colombia it is almost impossible to buy INW, FLV, VT, WF and the list goes on.... and on...
So i am trying to develop some simple yet delicious recipes with flavors that i believe most of you reading this will have, in a way to encourage new mixers or peaple who are just trying to get in to DIY but dont have that budget at the beggining.
Also it have been a great learning opportunity because with this simple easy recipes i have started to understand different flavor pairings and know what each of those do in the mix.
Now lets talk about the recipe itself (sorry for the long boring intro)
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl: OMG i love this!! it gives so much body, and its the star of the recipe. I think the pastry/cinnamon combination that this have is amazing for a simple recipe like this one.
Now in order to smoothe and add more mouthfell and a creamy layer I went with TPA Banana cream and TPA Vanilla swirl. Those two make the cinnamon more soft and delicate. And the TPA Banana cream adds like a hole new twist, more like a surprise element... And that's it!! just 3 flavors but a very great juice in my oppinion.
As a SNV i have to say its really good but simple, with not much mouthfeel so I encourage you to wait from 3 to 7 days... That way it feels more balanced and I hope it will give you nice a surprise.
Hope you guys like it and please leave behind a review.
A half baked attempt at a crepe that rides the border between a sweet breakfast and dessert.
The idea came together when staring at the list of new flavors coming in and decided to jump right in on something since just about everything was recommended rather highly.
The Peanut butter, Hazelnut, and caramel toffee combine to make a much more authentic peanut butter flavor than I had initially expected, but the faults of each individual flavor fall to the wayside and produce a harmonious mess that would make Peter Pan jealous.
Banana creme provides a really nice rich and creamy banana flavor to the mix. Not a cooked banana per se, but not the raw banana slices you'd get from PUR banana either.
Cinnamon danish swirl does what it does best and adds a little bit of sweet cinnamon to the mix. the amount of richness and body of the other flavors ensures that this doesn't overwhelm the mix.
the crepe is a delightfully effective soft bakery note to hold it all together, just like it would at the breakfast table.
