Passing On a Clever Idea!


Passing this idea on from The Tumtum Tree because I think it's so very clever! Put the pancake batter in an empty ketchup bottle and squirt out the pancakes. Because it's in a squirt bottle, you can even "draw" with the batter and make different designs. Awesome!


And then couldn't you save some pancake batter for another day if your squirt bottle was big enough? Eliminating the need to remix batter, etc, thus making it easier to enjoy pancakes in the morning rush? And you could probably even mix the batter in the bottle, reducing the number of dishes used for the meal. I don't know for sure how long pancake batter lasts after it's mixed. Anyone?

Something does come across my mind and that is I read somewhere that you shouldn't reuse disposable plastic containers like water bottles, soda bottles, presumably ketchup bottles, too. Maybe you could find a new, resuseable squirt bottle and have the same effect. :)

{Sorry. I've been on a Steve Martin Binge lately...}

The idea to use a ketchup bottle was originally posted here.

By the way, The Tumtum Tree is chock full of great ideas and pretty pictures. Check it out sometime! :)


  1. Great idea! I will have to do this. Thanks for sharing!

  2. AWESOME idea! I am GOING to use this!!

  3. Um this is AMAZING! I am so glad you posted this!!! I love pancakes, but sometimes they are such a hassle, this will make them a breeze!
