Simple Recipe Chocolate cakes

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.
