WFMW: No-Spill Batter


Welcome to Wednesday at reprehriestless warillever, when I give you the little tips that "work for me." To find more handy-dandy tips, visit Rocks in my Dryer for Shannon's weekly WFMW carnival.
Today we have a cooking tip from mr warillever. Yes, you read that right -- a cooking tip from my blessed and wonderful but hopelessly culinary-impaired husband.

Mr warillever makes pancakes nearly every Sunday. He mixes the pancake batter in a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, then pours the batter from the spout into the warm frying pan.

No mess, no dribble, and no ladle to put down between batches.

A splendid hack, and one that I have taken on with gusto. I now mix batters, sauces, and dressings in my liquid measuring cups, then pour without a mess.

Works for me!

Glad to hear that I am not alone!! I love using my spout measuring cups for pouring things as well.

Thanks for sharing!

LOL, I do this too...my Mom used an
old pancake syrup bottle (that she cleaned out) to be able to "draw"
fancy shapes and our names for us.
I have been known to play around with this concept for Princess. ;-)

I make such a mess when I cook. I will give this one a try.
