From A Book of Pancakes, by Nina Kirkman

On a crisp, fall morning….

Cut it in half, scoop out innards and seeds, and place face-down in a small casserole dish or cookie sheet. Add a bit of water and cook for 45-60 minutes at 400. This person is now done. He/she should drink coffee and read a book, or else invent something while (2) the sleeper-inner finally gets out of bed. Making the pancakes is now their responsibility.
