Put flour, a pinch of salt, eggs, milk and melted butter in a bowl and whisk together to make a smooth, runny batter.

Heat a little butter in a heavy-based frying pan. Pour in a small amount of batter and tilt pan so batter covers the base in a thin layer. Cook for about 2 minutes, then holding pan handle with a tea towel, flip pancake and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with a squeeze of lemon and sugar.


As the saying goes, “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, feed him for a lifetime.” The same applies to children.

Giving children their own cooking tools gives them ownership in the kitchen. Teaching them a few basic recipes gets them interested and gives them independence to feed not only themselves and their family, but also their friends. Giving plants teaches them the rhythm of the seasons, patience and nurturing skills.

This gift box contains the basic tools and ingredients to create the accompanying recipe. Wrap it all in cellophane, tie it with a bow, then simply add some adult supervision and the time to have some fun in the kitchen!
