Bachelor Pad cooking – Shake and Bake Pancakes:

This easy to make recipe has only cheep and common ingredients and results in very few items to clean up. (Prep time, 10-15 minutes, cook time 13-15 minutes.)

  1. Start oven warming to 450° F
  2. In a 12oz canning jar, put 1 ½ Tbs. of real butter and a few oz of milk, don’t worry about measuring the milk.
  3. Nuke this for about 30-60 seconds. The butter should be starting to melt but you don’t want the milk to hot. Stir vigorously (use a chopstick or other small stick) until the butter finishes melting.
  4. Add:
    • ¼ cup sugar
    • ½ tsp. baking powder
    • Salt to taste
    • A few drops of vanilla extract (optional)
  5. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Add 1 egg.
  7. Close lid and shake until mixed.
  8. Open and add:
    • ½ cup flower
    • Milk to fill the jar, leaving some shaking room.
  9. Close the jar and shake vigorously, making sure all the flower gets mixed in. If needed scrape the sides with a chopstick.
  10. Pour into a well greased pie plate and bake for 13-15 minutes.
  11. Cut the side of the pancake free with a knife, razor blade or pointy stick and flip the pan over on a large dinner plate. Using a chopstick and being careful not to burn your self, separate the pancake from the pan (using a clear glass pan makes this easier).
  12. Enjoy!
