[MUSIC] I'm Jessie Chapple from Food & Wine's test kitchen.
Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [MUSIC] There
is nothing better than pancakes for breakfast, but there's nothing
worse than the mess they create. The worst of all
is when you're ladling the batter onto the griddle, you
get all these drips all over the stove. But, I
have a mad genius tip that's gonna teach you how
to make dripless pancakes. The secret to this mad genius
tip is something we all have, and never use. A
turkey baster. So, I have my pancake batter, and I'm
just gonna use my turkey baster to transfer the batter
to the griddle. Okay, there's no drips. I'm walkin' around.
Hanging out. Having a chat. You can get really fun
with the turkey baster. You can do different shapes. You
can make hearts. You can make stars. You can even
write your name. And everyone's favorite toppings for pancakes, maple
syrup. Yummy. Beautiful. It's steaming. It's fluffy. And they're delicious.
