Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


These are really simple to make. You can eat them with lemon and sugar as a dessert, or with maple syrup or jam for breakfast. My children have tried many times to flip the pancakes over and they are only now getting the hang of it.
You need:
-1 glass of plain flour
- 1 glass of milk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
-  a tablespoon of sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
- butter
You also need a non-stick pan (preferably very small)

Mix well all the ingredients except the butter (either by hand or with a hand held mixer). Heat the pan (medium to high heat) with a bit of butter on top  (the size of a hazelnut more or less). When the butter is melted pour enough of the pancake mixture to coat the pan. After 2-3- minutes (when you see bubbles appearing over the surface of the pancake) turn the pancake around with the help of a spatula or by flipping it over your head if you dare it. Wait for another minute and serve immediately.
The children can -and like to- do all this pretty much on their own provided you supervise it closely as they can burn themselves when turning the pancake around.
