WATCH: How to Make a Flute Out of a Pancake

Pancakes, those lovely golden brown circles heralding a sweet weekend breakfast, are treats for both your eyes and, of course, your taste buds. But haven’t we all bit into a sweet hotcake and wished there was just a little bit more — some way it could delight just one more of our senses.

Math teacher and father Nathan Shields has found a way to make a magical food that much more magical in his new instructional video, where he turns a pancake into a bona fide musical instrument. Unfortunately, it’s nothing quite so cool as a guitar, synthesizer, or turntables, but a flute is still pretty good for a sliver of fried batter.

Even once he’s perfected the pancake flute, he uses it to create something pretty cool.

Watch the surprisingly enjoyable video above.
