As finals are descending upon us, essential human needs fall by the wayside. We all no longer know what it is like to sleep more than 4 hours at a time, sweatpants become our everyday attire, and food consists of Doritos cup-o-noodles, and energy drinks. Doing all of these things are completely counter productive to doing well on our finals.
In my opinion though getting no sleep and dressing like a slob during finals is perfectly acceptable. But, everyone needs a nice hearty breakfast to start up your brain in the morning and keep you moving. So I took a Nutella Stuffed Pancake recipe from Divas Can Cook and tailored it so all of us poor and worn out college students can have a nice hearty breakfast right in our microwave.
For this recipe you’ll need to go to Outtakes and buy the following items pancake mix, pancake syrup, Nutella, cheese (optional), Silk soy milk, eggs and butter (only if you don’t have some leftover from previous recipes).
Start off by slicing four large strawberries into thin slices.
Set your strawberries aside and pour 1/3 cup of pancake mix into a small bowl. Add about 5 tablespoons of water to the mix.
Mix the water and pancake mix together. The mix should be pretty thick but should still have a liquid consistency.
Spread a thin amount of butter on a microwave plate to make it non-stick. Pour the pancake mix onto the dish.
Add two small spoonfuls of Nutella to the middle of the pancake mixture.
Microwave the pancake with Nutella for 2 minutes. While this is microwaving, crack one egg into a microwave safe bowl.
If you would like cheese in your eggs, the cut up tiny pieces of pieces of cheese and place in the bowl with the egg.
Add one tablespoon of soy milk (or any kind of milk you want) to the mix. Use a fork to whisk the egg, milk and the cheese together. Set aside until the pancake is done in the microwave.
Head back over to your microwave once the two minutes are up and check to see if your pancake has cooked. The pancake will not look as crispy as it would have if it were made on a griddle but it should be the same consistency as a pancake. Place your strawberries on top of the pancake.
Add syrup to top off your Nutella and strawberry pancakes.
Place your bowl of egg in the microwave and microwave it for 1 minute. After a minute the egg should look light and fluffy.
Take a fork and whisk the egg to make them scrambled.
Place your eggs on your pancake plate and you have a very filling and easy breakfast to give you fuel before your finals!
