I like pancakes, and the kids all like pancakes, but they are kind of a pain in the butt to make for many children and then cut up for many children.
Recently I tried something different to make the process more efficient so everyone could eat at the same time and I didn't spend forever-and-a-day cutting up the little kids' pancakes. Here's what I did...
Pull out the big skillet!
pour your batter into a rectangularish shape, and don't beat yourself up about the irregular shap.
It was at this point that I realized flipping the dang thing would be impossible, so I used the spatula to cut it into 3 flipable chunks
but watch the edge!
when done cooking move them to a large cutting board, take out your pizza cutter (it's good for everything!) and cut it into strips that they can pick up with their fingers and dip into a little syrup!
serve with some syrup and fruit
and enjoy!There's a way to make pancakes like an actual cake, in a cake pan, which makes things even easier, but with the pancake mix I've been buying it just doesn't turn out right. Also I don't really know how hot to cook it at or for how long :o)
I hope to return to regular blogging after our taxes get done (should happen next week) and can once again devote some of my brain power to blogging!
