My husband (and quite possibly my toddler’s) take on nesting is involving baking, a lot of baking, like every evening this week. I’m not complaining, although my thighs might be when I finally get back on the treadmill post baby.
To satisfy the boys’ insatiable appetite for the sweet stuff, I’m constantly searching online for new recipes and Baking Mad has tonnes of recipes for kids (and adults) with clear instructions and difficulty ratings, making life simple. After trying our hand at cupcakes and cookies, Oliver pretty much made these chocolate chip muffins below, solo.
Daddy and I supervised but this 2-year old has ‘skillz’ in the kitchen. The cutest moment came at the start when we put an adult apron on him and he proudly remarked, “I’m a chef now”. Sampling a muffin (or three) later, I have to agree with him. Absolutely delicious! Well done O!
What do you like to bake with your kids?
