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 Smiley 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 Smiley 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!

I'm going to have to try this!  I think my kids would love to make their own pancake cake for breakfast!  Great idea!

Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny, you become confused, just be nice.

The best part is how cheap it is! They sell their pancake mix for less than $2 where I am. I love Target. Their food is so cheap, and it's just as good as name-brand ^_^

Yorkshire puddings are pretty much pancake mix. They're yummy. You can either have them with gravy and a main meal or with jam and ice-cream for dessert.

We're having a roast dinner tonight so hopefully my mum will make Yorkshire puddings. Yummo!

Pure genius!  I love pancakes but for some reason I burn them every time I try or they fall apart.  I always buy the pre-made frozen kind you stick in the microwave.  I am SO excited to try this for breakfast in the morning!

Awesome! I think even I  could do this. The extent of my cooking skills is, like, instant oatmeal. Great tip for people like me!

ive done this before! i forgot about my roomates birthday and i had promised her a cake...
so i did something similar to this, just added some strawberry pie filling mixed into it and then after it was done i glazed it and put more pie filling on top.
it was a tasty less-than-$3 birthday "cake"
and she didnt know that i had forgotten...

 Cheesy What a GREAT idea!  I always want pancakes but don't want to pull out all the stuff.  Thanks for the instructions!

I think the greatest thing about this is that you have a pancake with 95% less trouble and mess. I am going to have to do this.
