For the second Saturday in a row, I made pancakes. In my dorm room. Without a stove top, burner, griddle, whatever.
Let me explain.
The college world has its stereotypes, especially when you’re talking about roommates. There’s the roommate who’s always naked, the roommate who screams in the hallways, the roommate who snores worse than your grandpa, the roommate whose stuff is literally EVERYWHERE, the roommate who decorates the room with posters of some “hot guy,” the roommate who’s always MIA…etc.,etc.,etc.
I found out that I’m the roommate obsessed with pancake batter.
Yep. You know that made-from-scratch pancake recipe I posted a while ago? I have a confession to make. I will seriously eat the batter by spoonfuls. I even like my pancakes half-done, so that they’re “cooked” and warm on one side and still gooey and batter-y on the other side.
You don’t need to tell me I’m weird, I already figured that out.
So last Saturday, I woke up, and I decided that I would make pancake batter and eat it for breakfast. With bananas and granola and stuff. Before I started, I turned on the coffeemaker to brew some java, and then an idea struck me: why not use the hotplate on the coffee maker to cook the pancakes?
So I did.
With chocolate chips!
Is a coffemaker’s hotplate hot enough to make pancakes? If you’re like me–heck yeah.
If you’re traditional and like your ‘cakes to actually be mostly brown–you’re probably thinking I have no idea what a real pancake is.
