Today is Pancake Tuesday and to celebrate, we learned how to make pancakes at school! We learned that Pancake Tuesday occurs on the day before Ash Wednesday. People long ago would use up all their eggs, milk and sugar before Lent and making pancakes was a simple way to do this.
We got all our utensils and ingredients ready. Clodagh could even name the spatula! We weighed the flour and sieved it into the bowl with a pinch of salt. Then, we added the eggs and gradually added the milk as we whisked the mixture. We mixed it really well with a whisk. We added a little bit of melted butter and finally our pancake mixture was ready. Adam even remembered that the pancake mixture is called batter!
We cooked some pancakes, making sure they were golden brown on both sides. Ms Lambe flipped the pancake and caught it in the pan! We got to choose our topping – most people wanted Nutella! Only one person wanted lemon and sugar!
Now we know how to make pancakes. We can also sequence the steps for Maths and History.
