I fancey having a fun baking session with ds and dd tomorrow. They're only 2 and 3 so I think I might give Suzywongs peanut butter cookies a so. Has anyone got any other fun recipes I could make with them??
I got a muffin recipe from discovery kids that is really easy with kids! (and for me since I can't bake!)
Take a carton of flavoured yoghurt (black cherry or raspberry are good) and empty into bowl.
Then use the same yoghurt carton to measure in:
1 carton veg. oil
3 cartons flour
1 carton castor sugar
mix in 3 eggs
Mix well together and put into muffin cases.
bake in oven - think it's 140 deg.c - for about 15 mins - or until they are golden brown.
I also mixed some frozen rasps into the mixture when I used raspberry yoghurt which made them even better!
75ml bourbon/rum (I've used apple juice sccessfully though!!)
175g plan flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
half teaspoon bicarb
half teaspoon salt
125 g butter (melted)
2 large eggs
4 ripe bananas, mashed
60g walnuts (I've never put these in)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
loaf tin, buttered and floured or lined with greaseproof paper
put sultanas & rum in saucepan, bring to the boil and leaave for an hour or until the liquid's mostly been absorbed. This plumps up the sultanas. Drain.
Preheat oven to GM 3 170 C
Put flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt in a bowl and mix.
In a nother bowl, mix butter & sugra and beat until blended (or use a mixer!!) Beat in eggs one at a time and then the bananas. Stir in walnuts, sultanas and vanilla. Add the flour mix 1/3 at a time, stirring well each time. Scrap into loaf tin (I've had to pour it on occasions!) and bake in the middle of the oven for 1 - 1.2 hours. Leave in the tin to cool.
you melt the choc, butter and honey in a bowl over water on stove/hob.
then the kiddies mix in the cornflakes and put into paper cake cases, in the fridge or freezer to go hard.
you can use a much or a little of each as you like, the only things is that you need to fully coat the c/flkes in choc.
