We kicked off our new cooking club this week with pancake making. The children read the recipe, measured and poured the ingredients, and mixed the batter. They observed the differences between dry ingredients and wet ingredients and even cracked the eggs by themselves! They also chose toppings for their pancakes and sliced bananas for a snack while they waited for the pancakes to cook. They watched the pan carefully. When the pancakes got bubbly in the middle, we knew they were ready.
Then the children very politely used forks and knives to eat them. They were delicious!
