Let's arrange the instructions for making pancakes in the right order
Pour in a little batter, moving the pan round until there is a thin coating.
Make a small hole in the centre of the flour/salt mixture and add an egg.
Cook until the pancake begins to curl round the edges, showing the golden brown colour underneath.
Sift the flour and the salt into a bowl .
Heat a little butter in a frying pen.
Now beat the mixture with a wooden spoon, adding the milk gradually until well mixed.
Next fry the other side until it is golden brown.
Ease a palette knife under the centre and flip it over.
Then turn the pancake onto a plate.
Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight, O
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh (repeat)
A day or two ago,
I thought I'd take a ride,
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank;
Misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got upsot. O
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
o What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh. (repeat)
