So, here I am in my studio apartment.. out of clean dishes and craving something from Ihop. Also, as a college student I'm broke as a joke. So, it just so happens my fiance and I bought several boxes of complete pancake mix from Target (because I make biscuits and pancakes with them all the time). Then a lightbulb came up over my head.
I took a Glad Bowl (the microwaveable kind) and put in 1/2 cup of Complete Pancake Mix (the Buttermilk kind) and 3/4 cups of water and cooked it for 2 minutes on high in the microwave. Then, I turned over the bowl onto a paper plate and stuck some butter and syrup on it..
and voila! Pancake Cake in 3 minutes
I tried it a few different ways, mixing the water and batter different ways and this was the best kind that came out.
Here's a picture of it. It's not a great picture, but it's there.. and It's absolutely yummy
I bet with some of that ready-to-eat bacon or sausage that would be great for an easy dorm breakfast!
It fills you up about the equivalent of 3 or 4 pancakes, so it's a nice solid meal in itself. You can double it or halve it as your stomach desires. I know this is nothing special, but I thought it was a neat idea and figured I'd share it!
