What she's talking about is a product called Batter Blaster, which come in a can very similar to whipped cream. According to the package instructions, the product "makes breakfast a blast"! "Just blast batter into a skillet or waffle iron and serve!" But would it work? And would it taste good? Inquiring GingerSnaps wanted to know!
After preheating the iron, Miss G brushed the grids with oil and blasted away. After she released the batter from the can, it continued to expand, kind of like that styrofoam stuff from Home Depot that you use to seal the cracks around windows! Ugh, what a mess as the stuff oozed out the sides of the waffle iron. When Miss G opened the appliance, there was half a waffle stuck to the top and half a waffle stuck to the bottom. She peeled it off with a fork and tried again. After a while, she learned to control the amount of batter, keeping the entire waffle centered within the non-stick grids of the waffle iron, and they released easily each time.As for their taste, the GingerSnaps all gave them a resounding thumbs up. Miss Ginger found them to be crispy and light on the outside, but the insides were perhaps a bit chewier than she would like. Considering their simplicity and ease of use, they are definitely a product worth trying. And the package is right- I'm pretty sure kids would find them "a blast!"
