Pancakes make a great weekend breakfast or lunch.
Kids can help measure and stir the ingredients, and
even help flip them with an adultís help. Try
making pancakes in the shape of a childís initial.
You will need:
1 1/3 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 ½ cups milk
3 tbsp oil
¼ tsp vanilla
- Mix the flour, salt and baking powder together.
- Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Add the oil, eggs
- Stir the ingredients together, but do not over-mix. The batter
should still be lumpy.
- Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Drop
about ¼ cup of batter into the pan.
- When bubbles form around the edge
of the pancake, flip it over. Cook until
the other side is golden brown. You
can put cooked pancakes on a plate in a
warm oven until you have enough for everyone, or eat
them right away.
- Serve with syrup and butter or jam. If you are lucky
enough to live somewhere where you can pick your own
cranberries, nothing makes a better pancake topping than
homemade cranberry sauce (next).
