smpx 39: pineapple

This week we searched the kitchen cabinets for something to make for SMPX and found a can of pineapple chunks. I drained the juice and patted the pineapple pieces with paper towels to get off as much of the excess juice as I could before adding them to the batter.

The result was good! We give pineapple pancakes 3/5 stars.

smpx 38: bisquick shake 'n' pour

We originally bought Bisquick Shake 'n' Pour for our camping trip, but ended up using Batter Blaster instead. We finally used the Shake 'n' Pour this weekend for an easy SMPX. Despite having possibly the worst commercial ever, these are pretty good.

Just like the commercial shows, you add water to the jug, shake it up, and pour right onto the griddle. They were fluffy and light and honestly, tasted better than some of the pancakes we've made over the last few months. The jug made 6 small pancakes, which was just the right amount for the two of us.

*** 1/2
We give Bisquick Shake 'n' Pour pancakes 3.5/5 stars.
