Children pick 'fun' pancake for prize

Wednesday, November 12, 2003

CHICAGO -- The children's choice determined the winner of a recent pancake contest, in which campfire flavor proved a strongly persuasive ingredient -- combined with easy wooden-spoon techniques.

Top honors went to "S'More Pancakes, Please," a recipe created by Cindy Trantham and her three children, Ryan, 11, Shelby, 9, and Ellery, 6, from Allen, Texas. The pancake recipe includes traditional s'more ingredients: graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows.

Children from the General Robert E. Wood Boys & Girls Club, Chicago, acted as judges in the Cooking With Your Kids Contest. They tested recipes and picked the winner from 10 finalists, selected from entries that came from across the United States.
