Scratch cooking

Okay, so I've been making a conscious effort to make things from scratch rather than purchase convenience products. It is very time consuming, but very fulfilling too. So, I got to thinking about pancake batter and came across this blog post.

I didn't even know this product existed. I can't imagine the taste of it. Sprayable pancake batter like nonstick pan spray? But, also at this blog they give a pancake batter recipe. I tried it. It was easy and yummy. Tasted much better than the normal Bisquick I make. I doubled the recipe b/c it clearly was not going to make enough for me, hubby and Zach. When I doubled it, I only used the 1 tbsp of sugar instead of doubling it and they tasted fine. I also did some with blueberries mixed in.

Mark's No Big Deal Pancake Recipe

1. Mix together 1 cup flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp sugar or natural sweetener.
2. Add 1 c milk, 1 egg, and 1/4 c oil and mix everything together. Leaving it lumpy is okay.
3. Fry up your pancakes.

Batter Blaster is yummy! Contrary to what you might think, it does not come out like non-stick cooking spray. In fact it is a nice, thick batter that comes out similarly to whip cream, except it is propelled by CO2, NOT NO2! Plus, it's organic!

Well, the being organic is definately a plus!! BUT! I think I will stick with my homemade batter. But, perhaps I should try to find some to test it out.
Where do you find it, because I've not seen it around.
