THANKSGIVING! American Style Pancakes to Share with the Family and Friends!

Hello from ROOM 18



Davey is really interested in reading about world histories!

Thursday was THANKSGIVING DAY in America.

Davey had read about the origin of this FEAST and told us all about the first THANKSGIVING of the pilgrims. We celebrated by making and sharing American Style Pancakes.

Firstly we watched this VIDEO!

You can watch it too! We read the instructions on the video and watched the steps!


  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder & a pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 300ml milk
  • Knob of butter
  • 150g pack of blueberries
  • Sunflower oil or a little butter for cooking
  • golden or maple syrup


  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  • Beat the egg with the milk, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
  • Whisk in the milk to make a thick smooth batter. Beat in the melted butter, and gently stir in half the blueberries.
  • Heat a teaspoon of oil or small knob of butter in a large non-stick frying pan.
  • Drop a large tablespoonful of the batter per pancake into the pan to make pancakes about 7.5cm across. Make three or four pancakes at a time.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes over a medium heat until small bubbles appear on the surface of each pancake, then turn and cook another 2-3 minutes until golden. Cover with kitchen paper to keep warm while you use up the rest of the batter.
  • Serve with golden syrup and fresh blueberries
