Since I had such success with the last Batter Blaster I reviewed, I thought, why not? Let’s try another variety of the stuff and see which one I like best! Off to the store, and a friend of mine  picked up the Batter Blaster Organic Original Pancake & Waffle Batter for me, partly because she said it was the only option to choose from. Well…that works, including I wanted to try the original variety anyway.

This morning post gym, I brewed up some coffee, sliced an apple, and then cooked some egg whites and 1 large pancake (as opposed to 2 small ones as the nutritional information suggests). I cooked up the pancake with some butter/buttery spray as I did that last time and found it helped with the flavor. Here’s what my giant pancake (about 42 grams or so of batter) looked like.

Annnnnnnnd the inside…..

I made more of a BIG pancake (probably the size of my face) so it cooked quickly and wasn’t super thick. It cooked evenly and all it took was a little non-stick spray and the pancake gave me no trouble at all.

Post frying pan, I transferred to a plate with my scrambled eggs and put some SF syrup (would love to use a little of the REAL maple syrup, but I’m a diabetic and have to refrain from sugar!). I tried a bit of the pancake plain first, and well, it tasted just that. Plain, kind of bland, not sweet and not a whole lot of flavor. However, I feel like pancakes in general, unless flavored, don’t have a bunch of flavor. Nothing a little butter and syrup couldn’t fix!

With the butter/syrup the pancakes were really quite good. Slightly crispy on the edges, super fluffy, and yummy. They reminded me of IHOP pancakes.

I do like that these pancakes were organic, relatively low in calories and fat, and like the bottle says “No Mess- No Cleanup!” which is true for the most part, since I still have to clean my frying pan and my spatula. However, these pancakes (by themselves) lacked flavor, and lacked fiber.  So, overall, not bad, but I think I like the Buttermilk version of this much better. 3 1/2 stars

What’s your favorite toppings for pancakes? I just like butter and syrup! Mmm :o)

I FINALLY tried this stuff. I pass by Batter Blaster Pancake & Waffle Batter in a can all the time at the stores. I always see it, I always wonder, ponder for a few minutes or so, and end up not buying it. But WHY?!

I don’t know. I’m a creature of habit.  My brain reasons with me, Why buy this if it might be bad?… I usually eat cereal for breakfast…I don’t even really like pancakes….then I’d have to clean the pan…. (LAZY)

But this time, my friends, THIS TIME I bought it. Batter Blaster Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Batter went into my shopping cart, up to the register, and then home with me.  I want to say it was a bit pricy…maybe 4 or 5 dollars or so, and I bought it at Whole Foods.

The other day I wanted something other than oatmeal. A girl can only have cereal or oatmeal so many times, and since I don’t own a toaster that puts a damper on my breakfast options. (Ever try “toasting” a piece of bread in the oven? Yea, 15 minutes for one slice of bread is so not worth it….)

I cooked up one large pancake instead of two small ones as the serving size suggested, along with some eggs. I saw that there was very little protein/fiber in the Batter Blaster Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Batter, so I knew I needed something to hold me. And what better to pair up pancakes with than eggs?!

Here’s the outcome…

Look yummy? Yes? Well….

IT WAS.

It was SO good. I cooked it over medium heat with a little Pam/buttery spray. The result was crispy edges, a fluffy  and soft middle, and just overall delicious. I only needed to add a bit of SF syrup (would probably be even better with REAL maple syrup, but you guys know I am a diabetic!) and it was perfect! It had a yummy buttermilk flavor, and honestly tasted exactly like Ihop pancakes. In fact, I think Ihop uses this pancake batter….. ; )

And, well,  it was SO EASY. A college dormer’s/lazy person’s/my brother’s dream. Literally shake the can, turn it upside down over a pan, and cook. Voila!

Obviously, the nutrition facts could be better. More fiber, less sodium. But these are SO good, so like I said, pair them with some eggs for lasting effect! Or yogurt, whatever floats your boat =) 4.5 stars

Pancakes or waffles? Which one is your favorite? Normally I’m a waffle person, but this batter blaster has CONVERTED me!!
