Cooking Class Part 4

Our most recent cooking lesson was on setting the table properly, table manners and they made a recipe all by themselves . . . pancakes.  Recipe to follow.  Just ignore the mug in the bowl in the picture below.  I'm not sure how that ended up like that . . . Piglet maybe . . . but it was perfect at one point, I promise.  Here's the link I used for a coloring page for an informal setting.
Here's a link to a more formal setting
 The kids were so cute about the "fancy" table setting.  They talked very proper like and it was a lot of fun.  Before they could eat we went through a list of proper table manners.  I was sad my son was not here for this portion of the lesson cause he could definitely use some reminders.  I think I see a future Family Home Evening lesson in the works.
 And look at this. Napkins on their laps and elbows off the table.  What proper young ladies they are.
1 cup white flour
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups milk
2 eggs
4 tablespoons oil

Start heating nonstick griddle to 350-400 degrees.  Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl and combine with wisk.  In separate bowl combine milk, eggs, and oil.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Do not over mix.  A few lumps are o.k.   Spray griddle with nonstick spray.  Using a 1/4 - 1/3 cup measuring cup, depending on the size of pancakes you want, pour batter onto griddle leaving about and inch in between each pancake.  When pancakes start to dry slightly around the edges and bubbles start to form in the center flip the pancake using a spatula.  Cook for another couple minutes until underneath side is golden brown then remove to a plate and continue the same method with the rest of the batter.
