I bought my kitchen in a small town in the Midwest and the kitchen is now my primary kitchen.
It’s a pretty small space, but it’s my primary bedroom and my main living space.
So I figured I could make a great DIY kitchen with the kitchen parts I already had.
My first goal was to get the best ingredients possible.
The goal is to get all of the ingredients from home depot, but I didn’t have to pay a lot of money for anything.

Mix until combined until well combined.
Add water to the flour mixture and mix again until well blended.
Add cornstich and mix until well incorporated.
Add milk and cornstuffs and mix together.
Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the center is golden brown and the edges are crispy.
Remove from oven and let cool on wire racks.
Use a knife to remove the center of the batter from the pan.
Remove the bottoms from the baking dish, then let cool in the refrigerator.
