I love getting Amelia in the kitchen and doing fun and simple recipes that Amelia can get fully stuck in on! PhotoBox are currently running a fab campaign all about getting Kids in the Kitchen and they have a brilliant competition running that you can get involved in – all you need to do is upload a photo of your child getting stuck in in the kitchen here!
I’m going to share with you THREE super duper simple kids in the kichen recipes that are quick, easy and perfect for little hands!
Chocolate Mug Cake;
This is a really easy one as you just throw everything in the mug, give it a mix, pop it in the microwave for 50 seconds and you’ve got a cake in under a minute! Amelia loved mixing it all up in the mug and getting a cake out of it that quick I think she was pretty impressed. We used a personalised mug from Photobox these would be a fab gift or treat for yourself!
These are a huge favourite in our household and much simpler than you might think, for a full recipe head here.
All you need to do is preheat your oven to 220C/425F/Gas3 and put some baking paper on a baking tray. Rub together the flour and butter. Add your salt, pepper and mustard powder then stir in the cheese and the milk to make your dough. Roll it out and cut out your scones, paint them with some milk and pop them in the oven for 10minutes!
This is the first time I’ve let Amelia take the lead and she did all the rubbing of the flour and butter and stirred in (when she wasn’t eating) the cheese. I got her rolling pin out and we both rolled out the dough together and Amelia cut them all out herself and loved painting them with milk before watching them in the oven.
It can seem pretty daunting letting kids take over your kitchen and I love my bakes to look good in the end but it was so lovely watching Amelia get fully stuck in enjoying herself and proud of her creations. It’s a great thing to do together and amazing to watch their skills grow!
Chocolate Cornflake Cakes;
I’m not even going to give you a recipe for this one as all you need is some chocolate and some cornflakes! It is probably the easiest kids in the kitchen recipe. Just make sure you melt the chocolate yourself then let the children stir it in when it isn’t too hot!
Melt your chocolate, stir in some cornflakes, spoon into cake cases and decorate with sprinkles, marshmallows and whatever else is in your baking cupboard!
Amelia got stuck in stirring it all up, eating it and covering the cornflake cakes in sprikles and handfuls of mini marshmallows! We had some cute cake topper flags that we also decided to pop in. Amelia’s not shy with her decorations at all and each cake was fully covered and ready in record time.
So there we have it three super simple Kids In The Kitchen recipes that won’t trash your kitchen and you’ll probably already have the ingredients for. Make sure to head over the PhotoBox for your chance to enter their competition and be in the chance for winning a camera, PhotoBox credits and a kids cooking kit!
