Sinkhole opens in front of Mar-a-Lago, funny tweets abound

2 Shares

A 4x4 sinkhole has opened up in front of Mar-a-Lago on Southern Boulevard in Palm Beach, FL. It hasn't swallowed anything up, so as far as sinkholes go, it doesn't seem major. But it's inspired some fun tweets:

Blimp Style Pancakes

1 Share

Light, fluffy, big and round ... yeah, I'm talking about pancakes. But not those flat things that look like a round napkin that you cook on a griddle, but the Japanese kind that you make with a rice cooker.

Doesn’t every self-respecting household have a rice cooker? If you don’t, then you should! And here's one more nifty thing you can do with it.

Get yourself a box of pancake mix plus any extra ingredients it calls for such as water, eggs, whatever. 

Dump it all into the removable pot from the rice cooker and give it a healthy mix.

Put the pot into the rice cooker and turn it on for about 45 minutes. (Like bread baking machines, rice cookers do all the work for you.) When it’s done, turn it over onto a plate with a good shake and out comes a light fluffy blimp of a pancake.

Major yum.

You can also add cocoa powder and … heaven … get a chocolate pancake.

It sounds nutty, I know, but it works if the evidence of success on Instagram is any indication. You can also add chunks of chocolate, fruit (blueberries or bananas), and lots more when you mix the batter. Think in terms of utter pancake debauchery—liberate your palette from those flat things the rest of America is eating.

And one more thing:

As tempting as these all look, though, the single greatest advantage to making your pancakes this way isn’t the flavor, but the ability it gives you to enjoy a hot meal as soon as you wake up. All rice cookers have timers and a function where low heat is used to keep the rice warm after it’s finished cooking. Mix your batter the night before, hit the start button just before you go to bed, and come morning, you can be enjoying your fluffy pancakes almost before your eyes are completely open.
