On Friday, March fourth, Springville Junior High’s eighth-grade foods exploration class made pancakes.
“We do Pancake Day as part of our Carbohydrate and Quick Bread Unit. We just learned about quick breads, and pancakes are a pour batter quick bread. So...we made pancake,” said Mrs. Luke, the foods exploration teacher at SJHS. Quick bread(s) are breads that use a leavening agent other than yeast to cook making it quicker to fix. Some examples of quick breads include pancakes, cornbread, biscuits, muffins, and waffles.
Many students in her class enjoyed the activity, and loved getting to eat the pancakes. The students loved that they also got to celebrate National Pancake Day.
“My favorite part was eating a stack of pancakes with buttermilk syrup!” said Amanda Ripley, an eighth-grade students at SJHS.
