Pancakes! That's all I wanted---pancakes. Why are they so hard to make? Why can't I make delicious and pretty pancakes like you get in restaurants?
I bought the Bisquick Shake 'n Pour pancake mix. I added water---to the line. I shook and shook the container. I poured the mix into the pan.
It wasn't pretty!
Instead of a beautiful golden brown pancake I got this thing that was full of air holes and every shade of brown except golden. I remember hearing my mom say that the first pancake never turns out right, so I didn't let it bother me too much. I just shook and poured more mix into the pan.
I managed to make two pancakes that weren't pretty, but didn't taste too bad. Of course, if I had ordered them in a restaurant and they came out looking like these I would have refused to eat them sent them back to the kitchen. My house is no restaurant!
I decided to go ahead and use the rest of the mix instead of saving it for another day in the frig like the label says you can, because I wasn't going to be getting the 6 to 8 pancakes they advertised.
I shook the container and poured the mix into the pan. Except, this time, with the last of the batch there was more dry power than mix. How did that happen?
I tried stirring the powder around in the pan to mix it up. It was kind of like a stir-fry pancake. Don't ever try that! It's not good or pretty!
Why is cooking so hard?
