Healthy Henry likes to eat healthy food but he says it’s OK to have a treat sometimes.
As it’s Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day, Mrs Collins would like to share her pancake recipe with you.
Mrs Collin’s Pancakes
First of all you will have to wash your hands with soap and water to make sure they are clean and dry them well. If you have an apron you can wear this as well to keep your clothes clean .
- mixing bowl
- wooden spoon
- frying pan
- 1 level mug of self raising flour
- 1 level tablespoon of caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of milk for mixing
- Oil for your pan
- Mix until smooth.
Now we can start making our pancakes.
First of all you will need to ask an adult to help you with this part as we are going to use the cooker and we have to be very careful so we don’t get burnt .
We need the frying pan to be hot.
So put a little drop of oil in the pan and wait until it is hot.
- Chocolate spread (but just a little)
Mrs Collins hopes you have as much fun making them as she did.
Cooking together provides us with lots of opportunities to practise our maths skills – measuring out our ingredients, talking about colours, shapes and sizes, using a timer – as well as helping develop fine motor skills – chopping, mixing, spreading – and literacy skills as we read a recipe.
Here are some other ideas for simple cooking activities:
- fruit salad or fruit kebabs
- pitta bread pizzas
- vegetable soup
Let us know what you like to cook together and show us your pancakes on Google Classroom or Twitter @GlenwoodFC #Glenwoodlearningathome
