  2. How LONG do I put my pancake in the microwave for?? In Australia, we never learnt anything about watts. And my microwave has no way to change how hot it is, you just press how many minutes to put it in.

  3. For all viewers out there:
    . I tried the pancake and it worked.
    . I blended mine instead of mixing because I had some more time.
    . I would recommend blending it and then adding the blueberrys like in the video cause I blended the blueberrys and it turned out a blue pancake but still tasted nice
