Making pancakes can be just as much fun as eating them; this should be no different for a child with vision impairment. Follow our recipe and top tips to make your perfect pancake!
Before you begin, prepare your workspace: ensure that the lighting is adequate and that all your ingredients are within easy reach. It might be helpful to put your ingredients on a tray, to prevent those pesky eggs from rolling away and cracking.
Some smaller chefs and cooks may need to begin preparations at the table, if they cannot yet reach the kitchen counter; adult supervision might be needed when using the cooker and hob.
What you will need:
- 100g plain flour
- 2 eggs
- 300ml semi skimmed milk
- Pinch of salt
How to make pancakes:
- Put all ingredients into a bowl or large jug, then whisk to a smooth batter.
- Set a frying pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some greased kitchen paper.
- When hot, cook your pancakes for a minute on each side until golden, keeping them warm in a low oven on low heat until you have finished cooking them.
- Add your toppings: why not try lemon juice, sugar, chocolate spread, fruit, marshmallows or golden syrup? Some people also enjoy savoury toppings…
Whether you pre-measure your ingredients, or encourage your children to use gadgets like talking scales, liquid level indicators or large-print jugs, there are many hints and tips online on building your child's confidence in and out of the kitchen!
