These are perfect to bake with toddlers. They don’t use too many ingredients, not too complicated and they are robust enough that even a toddler can mess around with them and they still turn out. I’ve never found it easy baking with toddlers – I always get stuck after the whisking of the eggs – frightened that they will over mix and the bake will come out rock hard. I am getting better though and honestly really enjoy making these with Tara. She really enjoys it too as the photo below shows. Yeah, I know my utility room is a mess and I haven’t eaten all of those Creme Eggs, honest!
The first few times we made them, I thought she wouldn’t like them – there’s something about oats that makes a child suspicious! Too healthy. All 3 of my kids really like these though and we frequently have to make double.
There were some delicious looking bakes entered into last week’s Bake of the Week.
Kirsty from Hijacked by Twins gave a brilliant play on words with her entry – A ‘Baton’Berg which was made to celebrate the tour of the Sports Relief Bloggers Baton. I nearly got my hands on this at Saturday synchro training in Sale – It left the building a mere 2 minutes before we arrived! Anyway, back to the cake – how fab is this?
Jenny from Mummy Mishaps is a lovely blogger that often comes up with excruciatingly tempting bakes. This week is no exception – I know a 3 year old that would love these Malt Loaf Chocolate Brownies!
And lastly, Sarah from Crew Cut and Newt gave us a tip for when a bake doesn’t go quite right (Happens all the time round my house!) – Serve it as a pud! With this Cherry coulis, I reckon it sounds divine.
Thanks loads to everyone who took part in this week’s Bake of the Week – The link is open for everyone to enter again now. Remember, it doesn’t have to be cake…bread, biscuits, tarts, flans all count. I Pin and tweet every entry and mention in the weekly roundup on a Monday evening. The linky is open until Monday morning 7th April.
