Mellow Yellow and Macro Monday all in one - Pancake Cake

So, I was in the mood to serve pancakes. But I was intrigued by an idea that I heard recently: apparently, if you take pancake batter and bake it in a pan, you get one gigantic pancake that can be cut into individual servings. I figured it was worth a try, and so I spent three minutes preparing a meal, as opposed to 20 in front of a frying pan. Here's the finished pan:
Something about the texture here was fascinating - it looked to me like the surface of some faraway planet:
Interesting, right? Needless to say, the kids were shocked. Cake for dinner!
As always, feel free to click on any of the photos to enlarge them!
