What could be better than making pancakes from scratch? It’s also incredibly easy.
If you teach your children how to prepare their own meals from a young age, you teach them responsibility and reinforce their own abilities.
It also helps with their critical thinking skills and keeps them out of trouble. If they are younger, they can assist with measuring out the pancake ingredients and if they’re older than 6 years old they can definitely get more involved.
- 1 cup self-raising flour (sifted)
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 3/4 cup milk
- 50g butter (melted)
Beat the eggs lightly, then add the sugar, milk and butter – and mix until combined. Add the flour and whisk until there are no more lumps. Heat a non-stick pan and coat with a layer of cooking spray. Ladle on the mixture for 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Top with chocolate chips for variation. Serve with fresh cream and maple syrup or cream cheese and jam.
