The day we found out the most efficient way to cut a round cake and divide pizza slices mathematically, our minds were blown. We had really been living life entirely wrong until that point. Well, now we have another trick to share that will change the way you eat breakfast forever.

Revealed by rapper Tyler, The Creator, this frozen waffle hack is ridiculously simple, yet totally ingenious. Surprisingly, there's no toaster involved—despite the directions printed on the box from literally every pre-made waffle company advising otherwise.

Instead he slathers each buttermilk waffle (like Stranger Things' Eleven, Tyler prefers Eggos) with butter and places it in a hot skillet in a video for Odd Future.

While one side cooks up, sprinkle the other side with cinnamon.

Let each side cook for 45 seconds. If you're feeling fancy, ditch the spatula, too, and just flip that baby in the pan with the flick of your wrist.

Just look at that crispy, golden brown goodness.

From there, just dress it with syrup and enjoy.

Of course his co-host, Bonnie, might be a little biased in saying that it's the best damn frozen waffle she's ever had ("From 1 to 10, it's off the charts!"), but even the video crew agreed that this hack virtually made it taste homemade. We have to say we're impressed with this technique and we can't wait to show it off to our friends over brunch ... while listening to Cherry Bomb, of course.
