It’s been aggesssssss since I last wrote one of these posts so I apologise for that but we have still been baking together and having fun – sometimes I forget to take pics or write down recipes while make lots of mess and eat all the cake mixture!
Last week we baked a few times together firstly in preparation for her birthday party – cupcakes freeze well don’t ya know?
And secondly we made some rock buns which always go down well as it means Izzy can put her hands in the mixture and have a good play about in the kitchen. This time around I gave her some more challenging jobs such chopping the cherries up and helping me weigh the ingredients out and we had a ball.
Izzy preparing to bake with one of the lovely spoons that was gifted to us by Flora as a present when Chloe was born:
Cherry & Coconut Buns
You will need:
225g Self Raising Flour
100g Butter/Margarine ( we used flora buttery)
50g caster sugar
1 medium beaten egg
1 large handful of glacé cherries ( roughly chopped)
30g Sweet shredded coconut
2tbsp of milk
Preheat oven to gas mark 6.
Rub your butter into your flour – this is the fun and messy part for kids!
Add your sugar, cherries and coconut and mix well. Now add your egg and 1tbsp of milk and mix to a stuff dough – kids may need help here. If it’s too dry add your second tbsp of milk. Place in balls on a greased baking tray or you could use a silicon cupcake mould. Bake for about 12 minutes or until golden.
Izzy chopping the cherries.. one for the bowl ..one for her belly.
And the only pic I have of the finished product. They were devoured still warm in about 10 minutes. Oops.
