I finally caved in and let Diva make the Sunday morning pancakes. I let her make them from start (measuring all ingredients and mixing) to finish (plating and serving).
Normally, I let the kids make the batter but I never let them use the stove. Diva is 9 1/2 now and perhaps I should let her. I know I was baking with my mom at that age and using the oven, but the oven and the actual flame on the stove are two different things. I have been a bit hesitant and afraid of clothes burning and skin charring. But I caved.
It was a success! The only problem now is that she wants to make pancakes every.single.day.thank.you.very.much.
