Baking With Kids
Keeping your kids occupied during the Lockdown period is a challenge in itself. If you are a parent and have loads of ‘work from home’ assignments from your workplace, then you can relate it.
It is important to feed their mind with innovative yet playful activities so that they can forget about going out and playing with their friends. That’s why I am taking up A to Z Blogging Challenge with #BlogChatterA2Z and sharing another activity with the alphabet ‘B’. It’s baking with kids. Trust me, it’s such a playful yet super yummy activity for your little ones.
I know you all must be worried about the safety of this activity. But, if you are using precautions, then it can be such an amazing activity for your kids. You can start with easiest baking recipes for your kids like chocolate cupcakes, banana muffins or even iced biscuits too.
Why Baking With Kids?
Baking is a kind of activity which is enjoyed by everyone, isn’t it? Just imagine the wide smile on a kid’s face when they can see their handmade chocolate cake in front of them. It gives them immense pleasure and a sense of achievement. Moreover, they will learn about what all ingredients are mixed into the process of making a delicious baking recipe.
Material Required for the Baking With Kids
The materials for baking are generally dependent upon the item you are trying to bake with your kids. The most common is a baking tray, hand gloves, an oven and ingredients based on your recipe.
Angel and I baked a super tasty Nutella cake which includes flour, sugar, cocoa, egg, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla essence and of course Nutella.
How to do “Baking With Kids”
There are no specific instructions for baking with kids but just make sure the whole process of baking should be looked after by the adult and under their supervision.
So, we mixed all the ingredients in the required proportion and preheated the oven before baking. We greased our baking tray and poured the batter into the tray and set it in the oven for 3-5 minutes.
Let me know if you need a detailed recipe for this super delicious Nutella cake. I am happy to share that as well.
- I explained the benefits of each ingredient and why it is used in the process of baking.
