. . . Genius Pancake Tip . . .

Around our house we make a lot of pancakes thanks to my son's obsession with them.  I usually whip up a batch and scoop the batter out with a small cup or use the batter bowl to pour it into the pan but it always creates a drippy mess and I hate that.  As you probably all have figured out I'm always trying to think of how I can use something before I toss it out.  The other day we made pancakes and I was getting ready to throw out the old syrup bottle and I had this lightbulb moment--why not use that as a pancake "pourer".  We bought my mom a fancy Pancake Batter Bottle from Williams-Sonoma and I've often thought of getting one myself but now I won't need to.  Using this empty syrup bottle was GENIUS!  I just mixed up the batter and then poured it into the empty bottle and it worked wonders.  The pancakes were perfect circles each time.

  1. What a great idea!!
    We are almost out of syrup this is perfect timing :)

  2. Thank you so much for posting this. I was just going to order one this week. Now I will not have to. You have saved my some money!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
    Love this idea.


  3. THAT IS GENIUS! I always have left over batter and don't want to throw it out... so I put it in tupperware, it makes it's way to the BACK of the fridge and I throw it out in a few weeks anyway when I find it. This will work! Plus my teenagers/hubby can grab it and make their OWN when they want! OH YEAH!

  4. Could you pour the mix/water/ingredients into the bottle, shake to mix, then pour?? Not even dirty up a mixing bowl...

  5. Samantha, yes you for sure could do the mix and water in the bottle so you don't have to dirty any extra dishes. I also know you can keep the mix in the fridge for a little bit so you can always have pancakes quickly.

  7. What a wonderful idea! How have I never thought of this??

  8. I am so glad I came across this post. I made pancakes over the weekend and thought THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY!!! I will use this.And the mix will keep for a few day in the fridge. Can't wait to use it with my waffle maker.
