When I was shopping at the Whole Foods market recently I saw a crazy thing on the shelf. It was called the "Batter Blaster". It looked like a can of whipped cream but it was a can of pancake mix. It was not cheap. I think it cost $5.00 for the can. Maybe $6. I thought it was ridiculous but I also thought that it was something that the kids would think was very funny. (Do you notice a trend at all of me buying things because I think it will make my kids laugh? See here.) I, of course, bought it.
Anyway, I got to the checkout lane and the checker girl got all excited that I was buying this silly thing. She said that they had an employee taste test and that this thing made delicious pancakes. I wasn't so sure.
I got home and tried it. We loved it! It really does make tasty pancakes! AND, as a bonus, you can make all kinds of shapes and letters. You can draw whatever you want (within reason, of course. It IS pancake batter, you know.). It also makes delicious waffles.
I have since bought two more Batter Blasters. It is so simple and yummy. And I'm extra happy to report that we do not have to pay the super-high Whole Foods prices any more. I found a 3-pack at Costco for only $10! Woo Hoo!
So now, my friends, go forth and make yourselves some tasty organic squeezy star-shaped pancakes anytime you want. For an extra tasty treat, have them with some Trader Joe's Wild Maine Blueberry Fruit Sauce! Yummy!
