In the war time food availability was limited and food that was available was rationed (you could only have your fair share) At the end of the war people had parties. They made cakes and treats such as pancakes for the children.This was part of the celebration.

Here is a classic Wartime kids treat. Can you make some and send us a photograph of you enjoying them.

Extra task If you don’t have the ingredients to make them then we would like you to design a pancake picture. This can be your dream pancake-I would have chocolate, banana, strawberries and sprinkles. What toppings would you put on? Yummy!!!
