Pinterest Win: Perfectly Portioned Pancakes

batter 3


Sometimes we fail at Pinterest. Like in the case of my “Cotton Candy Cake” although I felt I failed, my family still ate it.

And sometimes we win and can make perfectly portioned pancakes. I was inspired by a pin that had been circulating for years. As a matter of fact, I pinned it TWO years ago.

I was also inspired by the fact that I made a “Melt-Your-Face-Off Meatloaf” and finally had a empty bottle to use. We don’t go through a lot of ketchup in our house because the only person that really likes it is kiddo and she’s only around on the weekends and she doesn’t like the Hot n Spicy kind. It took me forever to empty out that bottle!

First, go check out my “Sugar-Free Pancake Mix.”

Then, go check out my “Sugar-Free Homestyle Pancakes.” It’s not so hard to make perfectly portioned pancakes!

Once you have your mix and your other ingredients mix it all in a bowl. You’ll need a funnel. Place that on top of the empty (and clean) bottle and fill it with the pancake batter.

I used one squirt per pancake and that is what gave me those cute perfectly portioned pancakes!

Don’t worry, those red spots are on the outside of the bottle. I’m not trying to heat up anyone’s pancakes. 😉

  1. This is a really good idea for making perfect pancakes! We don’t go through a lot of ketchup either, so it may be a while before I can try this.

  2. That is such a clever idea. I usually make bigger batches of pancakes to freeze so this would be nice to get them made easier.

  3. Never thought of that way to make perfect pancakes before. I’ll have to give this a try myself when we do pancakes. We use ketchup and so will have to save a bottle just for this.

  4. This is a really great idea. We go through a lot of ketchup so I won’t have any trouble getting a bottle.

  5. I have the perfect bottle in mind to try these with. We just had pancakes today. My family loves them and I would like to make them just a little bit more perfect. Thanks!

  6. OMG, that is brilliant recycling! I love those containers when they have ketchup, I never thought to reuse. Thanks for this, and helping with pancake mixing time means I can make it before school some days!

  7. This is such a great idea. I usually use a scoop when I make pancakes, but it always makes a mess. This is a mess-free solution. Thank you!

  8. This looks like an easy way to make perfectly portioned pancakes! I could use that so I could actually sit down and eat them with my family, rather than eating mine while I’m cooking lol.

    1. I learned the hard way not to serve anyone until I was all done. I finally perfected my timing so that food is still warm when we all sit down to eat.
