How To Make Pancakes

January 2003

Eric Carle, author of the classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar, serves up another recipe for fun in this tale of Jack, who wakes up hungry for an enormous pancake for breakfast. But before he can enjoy his pancake, he must first get flour from the miller, an egg from the black hen, milk from the spotted cow, and butter churned from fresh cream.

Now who doesn’t want to hassle with making pancakes by getting flour, eggs, milk and butter? In this day and age, a lot of people don’t have time, or the effort, to prepare pancakes from scratch.

We have gone over the steps on how to make pancakes easier and more time-efficient: the instant mix, the ingredients and the procedure. I know I wouldn’t want to be Jack the Caterpillar looking for flour, eggs, milk and butter to make a good pancake, which might take hours.
