You may notice that I like making cakes with my children.
It is a very simple recipe that even my 2 year old is able to get involved in, and a slight variation can make it seem less dull.
I believe making them together has all manner of benefits for my children – bonding, counting, economics, weighing, self-confidence building – to name a few.
Gather up your ingredients
weigh and mix ingredients
8oz self raising flour
8 oz of butter
60z castor sugar
one teaspoon of baking powder
Heap of chocolate drinking powder
Count out the cake cases and put in the mixture
Whilst they are cooking the most important part licking the spoon and bowl
Cook for 15-20mins at approx 180 degrees in a fan oven
I do them until they smell cooked.
