Step 1

Whip up that batter using all of the ingredients. Whip it until it isn't clumpy and add the black food coloring until it's as black as the night time!

Step 2

Slop circular dabs into a hot pan, flip them bad boys until your nun cakes look real good!

Step 3

Butter them nuns up and eat these circles with Chug's Maple Syrup!

Because they're black, you won't know when these are burnt, but your guests won't know either! If they don't like it, let them eat at their own house!
