Your children will enjoy preparing these pancakes!
Measuring cup and spoons
Empty squeeze bottle (e.g. mustard or ketchup squeeze bottle)
Non-stick frying pan
3/4 cup (175 mL) plain yogurt
3/4 cup (175 mL) milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup (50 mL) butter, melted
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp (3 mL) baking powder
3/4 tsp (3 mL) baking soda
3/4 tsp (3 mL) salt
In small bowl, combine yogurt, milk, eggs and butter.
In large bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
Add yogurt mixture all at once to flour mixture, stirring until just combined (batter will be thick).
Fill empty ketchup or mustard squeeze bottle with batter. Cut off nozzle to enlarge opening. Heat greased non-stick frying pan over medium heat. For each pancake, squeeze batter from bottle into fry pan, making alphabet letters.*
Cook for 2 minutes, or until bubbles appear on the surface, then turn and cook other side. Serve with syrup or pureed strawberries, canned peaches, or other favourite fruits.
*If batter is too thick, add a small amount of milk to squeeze bottle and shake well.
This classic, one-pan meal is perfect for those nights when you want to treat your family to something delicious and hearty without the big cleanup. For added creaminess, add a generous dollop of sour cream!
