I went to a conference for work today. There were two events going on at the conference center. I attended an opening ceremony for about twenty minutes when I realized I was not at the right event.
They were talking about microbes and nanotechnology, and I was expecting maps and GIS. I kept expecting the speaker to show some maps, but he never did.
There were mountains of free food. That was both a good and bad thing. I had self restraint at lunch, but they served this amazing cheese at the networking session afterwards. I ate so much that I am laying in bed, incapable of moving.
I am in pain. The thought of eating again makes me ill. Whenever I overeat, I promise to never do it again. After a couple of months, I forget and do it again.
The recipe came from a blog called Divas Can Cook. I made it as directed.
The ingredients are 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1/2 cup yellow cake mix, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup butter, 1 3/4 cup milk, and sprinkles.
I added the flour and cake mix into a bowl.
I added the salt, baking powder, and sugar. The whisked the dry ingredients.
I added the beaten eggs, melted butter, and milk.
I whisked until there were no lumps. I let the batter rest for seven to ten minutes before cooking it.
I poured about 1/4 a cup of batter into a hot and greased skillet. I added sprinkled on top of the batter.
I flipped the pancakes when bubbles started to form in the center of the pancake.
I served these with whipped cream. The recipe suggests a glaze.
These were fun but not stellar.
They were flat and dense. The flavor wasn't as cake like as I expected.
The batter was very runny. I wonder if the consistency would have been better if I had added more cake mix.
I'm not sure if the problem was the recipe or me, but I wasn't crazy about the results.
