I saw a commercial for a pancake mix made by a national brand that you shake and pour. I thought that was such a great idea since my little boy likes to cook and makes the most enormous mess in the kitchen. He uses a whisk and a bowl and drips ingredients on the counter as he ladles from bowl to skillet. This is a great solution but I think we can call this one a do it yourself recipe. My batter in a bottle is for Light and fluffy pancakes that copy-cat the Betty Crocker Shake to Make using fresh ingredients. I like these containers from OverstockedKitchen because they offer a no drip pour which is nice when little people cook.
