I tend to bake with the kids on a Sunday. Things like crumbles, fairy cakes, rock cakes so easy things - kids are 4, 2 and 2. But it would be nice to bake something that lasted a couple of days and could go in ds1's lunchbox Monday and Tuesday. Any suggestions? No chocolate as dd is allergic.
Carrot cake or banana bread could be baked and then half shoved in the freezer so you could either unfreeze the other half on Wednesday, or save it for the following Wednesday and mix and match throughout the week so they got a bit more variety. You can also freeze raw cookie dough and bake them a few at a time.
i was going to suggest on top of air tight tin - how about freezer? i often bake a cake then freeze it ready sliced, you then take out 1 or 2 slices as needed. not sure how it would work with dry things like scones or rock cakes but i do it very successfully with victoria sponge mixtures and loaf cakes.
Well no carrots so we made courgette cake. It's wrapped in foil pending a cake tin. Planning to freeze one slice later and see how it is by Wednesday. I'd always imagined frozen cake would be like frozen bread, which is fine toasted imo, but not good for use as bread. Perhaps not?
