My kids love to help me in the kitchen, the get to play with water, pretend they are cooking by stirring pulses in pots and they get to mix! and they love mixing and mixing! what an awesome feeling it must be for them.
Even my 20m old come over and ask if he can ‘hep’? (help) and when I ask how he responds ‘miks miks’ (mix! mix!). So this fine morning kids wanted to eat (read MAKE) pancakes and we gathered our basic ingredients to start working. (it yields almost 10 pancakes)
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter
- pinch of sugar
- 3 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
We measured our flour and poured in a bowl, then added sugar and baking powder, sifted it. Next we added an egg, milk and melted butter. My tiny helper was whipping it in between.
When the batter was nice and fluffy after a lot of mixing and whisking, we placed the skillet on medium high till its hot enough then I poured 2-3 table spoons of batter on it and spread it into a thin and even layer. It soon started to form bubbles on a surface and popped, Then I turned it over and let it cook for few seconds till it was nice golden from both sides.
I then repeated the whole procedure for the batch of 5. (and refrigerated the remaining batter to make more pancakes later. it stays good for 4-5 days in the fridge).
Lastly, enjoy it. We like ours warm with a dash of honey, some bananas and blueberries!
