Baking With Little Ones

There are few better things that you can do with a little one than baking.
In my experience they love it. The youngest was so proud of her cake and loved telling her mum that she'd helped with it.





Also a raspberry cake like this is a great way of using up some of the raspberries! 
Really easy recipe, just a standard sponge mix with 200g of raspberries added in at the end and a couple teaspoons of vanilla essence., tastes amazing though!

  1. That does look lovely. We were given some raspberries the other day and ate them with a slice of homemade Bara Brith and some custard, over two nights!

  5. It looks lovely. As well as baking a cake, which in itself is a wonderful achievement you also gave your little one a valuable maths lesson and a science lesson, and to top it all a wonderful sense of pride at helping to feed the family.

    Magical memories of baking with Dad too.

  8. We popped over to UK recently, and I met my 5 yr old grand-niece for the first time. I gave her a pinny, ovengloves and some little tins for a present as I heard she likes to bake with her mummy - apparently she was thrilled and wanted to post me a fairy cake! Well done to you - a valuable time well spent!

    1. I think it's much more important than some things they're taught in school, after all we have to eat three times a day!
