Yummy pancakes for breakfast

Recently, when I bake, my 5 year old boy would come to me, wanting to help. I would find excuses to refuse because he tend to make the whole baking process much longer and messier.

Feeling bad, I asked him to make pancakes for the family breakfast. He was thrilled. I printed a recipe from the internet and asked him to follow.

He measured the ingredients, sift the flour, mix the ingredients together.. of course with loads of help from mommy. But when we served the pancake, he proudly announced that he made the pancakes with only a little bit of help from mommy. He also keep announcing how delicious it was. :-)

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

190 g all-purpose flour
10 g baking powder
6 g salt
10 g white sugar
295 ml milk
1 egg
45 g butter, melted

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
