link: Corndog Maker


I do believe I need this thing. Sure, it's a unitasker, and sure, corndogs are really bad for me, but I love them and I would adore the ability to make them myself all the time always. Until I die of a heart attack.

An attack of the midnight munchies with no real food on the house led to me wAnting biscuits, and since I'm lazy, drop biscuits. I found a recipe, mixed it up, cooked it, and whAt I got was not drop biscuits, but was tasty. They looked like big cookies and tasted like really moist cookies, or biscuity bread, they stuck to the pan like cement, and they were exactly whAt I wanted. We've dubbed them crubiscuits because they seem to be somewhere between a crumpet and an American biscuit-- if crumpets were made of biscuits.


2 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
2 c milk, cold

Mix it all up, drop it on a very well greased pan, bake in the middle rack of a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, and there you go! Aunt Sami's Old Tyme Crubiscuits, just like gramma used to make!
