the magic bullet

i know you've all seen the infomercial about the magic bullet. it's a great party item, and you can make virtually anything using it...and it's so easy to clean! well, i received said magic bullet as a gift and this blog will chronicle how well the bullet lives up to its reputation.

in-a-jiffy flapjacks

mmmm pancakes.

the bullet recipe book advises: "most people skip breakfast not because they don't want it, but because they don't have time. finally, with the amazing bullet you can create a hearty, satisfying breakfast without fear of being late for work and without coming home to dirty dishes...cleanup is as simple as opening the dishwasher and popping in a few items."
I DON'T HAVE A DISHWASHER. and the bullet makes a mess.

i added all my wet ingredients to the tall cup, and then the pancake mix. i was hesitant when using the bullet, because as anyone that has made pancakes before knows, if you mix the batter too much, your pancakes aren't fluffy and they are tough. using a blender for pancakes goes against my better judgement.

after my ingredients were added, i pulsed three quick times. i poured the batter onto the grill.
final result: the pancakes were pretty good. the mess on my counter, not so good. i probably wouldn't use the bullet for pancakes again. mixing the batter in a bowl works just fine for me.
p.s. are flapjacks and pancakes the same thing?
