Just before I was about to make these, I had cleaned out an ketchup bottle for recycling. Then I remembered some show (maybe it was even a commercial?) where I saw a woman reusing these squeeze bottles to make perfectly round pancakes. So, I thought I'd give it a try.
First - the pancake recipe:
(Makes about 8 3" pancakes)
1 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
1 c. milk
1 Tbsp. oil
Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg and oil. Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk until well combined and no longer clumpy.
Now - for the neat trick: Pour your pancake batter into a well-cleaned squeeze bottle (the ketchup bottle worked great - I just used a funnel to make getting the batter in there easier).
Now lightly oil your frying pan and heat it up over medium-low heat. Open the top of the batter bottle and squeeze the batter out into the pan:
