The kids and I went to the library this past week and took out this book:
Since Saturday mornings means "pancake time" in our house, the kids were excited and eager to try out this recipe for Apfelpfannekuchen (German Apple Pancakes.)
You can see from this picture they are really concentrating hard. Yes, they are great helpers in the kitchen. Hubby and I always call out for them when we start cooking, "We need a little chef in here - who wants to help?" They always come running its a lot of fun. But pancakes are their thing and now that Sweet Girl can read the recipe we stand back and let them create on their own.
Sweet Girl prides herself in the fact that she is an amazing "flipper" Here she is hard at work.
These were great pancakes I loved the apple and cinnamon in it and we followed the suggestion and topped ours with whipped cream - Enjoy!!
