I’ve been meaning to put this post up for a week or so, but only now getting round to it.
Me and the little ones did some baking in the first week of the school term as they both wanted to treat their new teachers to something nice.
I thought I’d just put a post up about it, as we all had so much fun mixing, cracking eggs, pouring, baking, icing and eating it!
The recipe I always use for any sponge cake is based on my own Nan’s recipe that she taught me when I was about 7 – so it seems rather lovely that I’ve now started to pass it on to my own kids! She would be proud.
The basic normal mix is as follows (6663):
– 6oz Self raising flour
– 6oz butter
– 6oz caster sugar
– 3 medium eggs (always free range!)
As this dinosaur mould was rather large I just upped the quantities to – 8884 (probably could have done with 10 10 10 5 to be honest)
Then depending on what sponge type I’m making I just chuck the extra ingredient in – so in this case I just put about 3 to 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder. (You can use the same mix and just add coffee essence and chopped walnuts!)
Anyway – enough waffle – here is some pictures of us baking. . . I’m hoping this might be the first of many #pappybakes or #bakingwithkids posts that I get to do as it was so much fun!
