With all of our diners, pancake houses, and fantastic breakfast spots, good pancakes are just what we do.

That being said, sometimes there's just something nice about making pancakes in your own home.

During the Covid lockdowns, when I was working from home, I think I made my wife and I pancakes almost every morning for breakfast!

That was also around the time I downloaded TikTok, and despite using it more than I should I do find some pretty cool cooking hacks on the app.

I was blown away when I saw this one yesterday, and when this weekend rolls around, I plan on giving this a try.

I'm sure in your life, you've made pancakes, right?

It's pretty simple; you heat up a skillet, mix together your pancake batter (I'm a big Krusteaz fan), and then throw that batter on the skillet to cook.

I think the hardest part of making pancakes is sizing out the batter on your skillet so that your pancakes don't run into one another.

Apparently, though, the way I just described to you is the wrong way to make pancakes.

TikTok user Hip2Save is an account that is all about life hacks, and their pancake hack seriously blew my mind.

Instead of making pancakes individually on a skillet, this user says it's better to pour all of your pancake batter onto a cookie sheet, put that sheet in the oven and then slice your pancake up like its actual cake.

Seriously, check it out and have your mind blown.

New Jersey is the pancake capital of the country, but I don't think I've ever seen pancakes made like this before!

I almost feel silly for not thinking outside the box before and trying this already.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
