Pancakes in a Can???

Oh, yes. Oh, yes. It's called Batter Blaster, and my mom introduced it to me. Now, if you look at my recipe list, you'll see that I do love pancakes and find deep satisfaction in making them from scratch. HOWEVER, it's a little tricky to get those perfectly fluffy flapjacks with crispy brown edges. Batter Blaster, LLC, a company out of Austin, is making it easier!

This company doesn't go in the same category as canned cheese or anything unhealthy. Here's why:

According to Batter Blaster's website:
2 pancakes= 80 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 5 grams of sugar
Ingredients include: wheat flour, cane sugar, and other natural ingredients

Super easy and delicious. So I have learned...don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

Okay, we need a (simple) recipe to go with it:

Berry Easy Syrup
6 Strawberries, sliced into quarters
3 TB berry fruit jam
1/4 cup fruit juice

step one: In a saucepan on high heat, lightly stir. Heat all ingredients until they start to boil.

step two: When it boils, lower to medium heat and cover. Cook for 5 minutes. Juice will condense down, berries will soften, and will create a thick compote syrup.
