Looks like you have a plan already, but I can't resist one more suggestion: pancakes! They make this batter that comes in a can like whipped cream. I think the pancakes are a little too airy, but everyone else I know who's tried them raves. You simply spray it onto the griddle. No muss, no fuss, and (most importantly) no work.
