Cooking with kids!
I have an almost 7 year old (going on 15 some days, I swear) daughter and I'm teaching her how to bake and teaching her how to measure out ingredients. Recently a friend of mine (dawnfire) posted how her daughter recently made some pancakes from scratch for the whole family. They were a hit and everyone loved them! Here is the recipe she wanted to share with everyone and it's child-friendly!
1. 2 Large Eggs
2. 1 cup Milk
2 tbsp. Cooking oil
3. 1 1/4 All-purpose flour
1 tbsp. Granulated sugar
1 tbsp. Baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
You will need: a small bowl, measuring spoons, measuring cups, a mixing spoon, a frying pan, no-stick cooking spray (we used a small amount of cooking oil), a pancake lifter and a serving spoon.
1. Break the eggs into the bowl and stir until the eggs are fairly smooth and a bit bubbly.
2. Add the milk and cooking oil to the eggs. Mix.
3. Add all the remining ingredients. Stir just until moistened. Heat the frying pan until a few drops of water bounce all over. An electric rying pan would be 380 F (190 C). Spray the pan with no-stick cooking spray. Scoop spoonfuls of the batter onto the frying pan using the serving spoon. When tops are bubbly and the edges are a bit dry looking, turn them to brown the other side. Spry should not be needed for the rest of the cooking. Remove with the lifter to a plate. Serve with butter or margarine and syrup. Makes 18 round pancakes (small pancakes).
