I have a lot of old 60ml syringes lying around. These make great water guns, but you can also use them to make pancakes. Just be sure you either get all the lumps out of the batter, or cut part of the end off so it can handle some lumps.
Simply stick the end into the batter, pull the desired amount into the syringe, and push it into the pan.
This is great because:
- You can make them any shape you want
- You have measurements on the sides, you can make them all the same size if you want
- It's not messy at all, hardly any cleanup needed, and it doesn't drip
- You don't end up with a lot of batter stuck to the edges, like you do with a squeeze bottle
And others. The picture below shows a smaller syringe than I usually use.
