Blueberry Chocolate chip Pancakes

This is a guest post by my friend Ravali, who is a mother and she is very passionate about cooking. Here she is sharing the cooking experience with her son. And a recipe to try as well

Who doesn’t love Pancakes. And why not make a healthy version at home. Here is our Step by Step pancake recipe by our little chef. I haven’t used a store bought box mix in about 8 years. Try and let us know. 

  • 1 1/2 cup All purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar(you can increase by another 1/2 tbsp if you dont plan on adding anything else to your pancakes)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Add all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Add egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix till everything is well combined. It is okay to have lumps.
  • Now you can add topping of your choice – blueberries, banana, strawberries, chocolate chips, raspberries. (Optional)
  • Heat a pan or griddle. Once hot, using a ladle pour batter onto the griddle. Cook until the edges are brown. Flip and cook the other side.
  • Once done, before removing to a plate add little butter.
  • Serve hot with maple syrup or honey. Or eat plain as is.

Importance of learning life skill

Involving kids in the kitchen is a practical life skill that will help them to become self-sufficient as they grow. As kids grow, they can start making their breakfast or a small lunch/dinner plate even without a grown up’s help. Also, this can be a bonding time for the family.


While cooking like everything else, proper safety precautions need to be taken.

Always has to be done under adult supervision.
