April 02, 2013  //  Posted by: House Xpert  //  Category: Kitchen Design & Ware

bread bakingApparently certain reality TV shows have made baking ‘the new rock ‘n’ roll’. We’re not sure about that, but baking has always been a great way to have fun and get kids involved in the kitchen. It’s relatively simple, with ways to involve even the littlest hands and what’s more, the results are delicious – at least most of the time.

Even if you have a baking disaster, don’t let that put you off. Your cookies and cakes don’t have to be an image of perfection, as long as you have fun making them. Here are our tips to do just that:

Cookies

Most kids love cookies and they’re relatively easy to make. You can use a variety of different ingredients and flavours and also choose whatever size and shape you want. Cookie cutters are a fun way to customise biscuits, or you can help kids cut their own shapes with a knife, for ultimate individuality.

Bread

Many beginners and even more experienced cooks find the idea of baking their own bread daunting. It’s often easier than people think however and bread makers at the Co-operative can make the process even more manageable. Kids can help mix and knead the dough if you’re baking in the oven, or can help layer the ingredients into a bread maker, if you’re using these handy appliances.

Cakes

From buns to fruit loafs and gooey chocolate cakes, there are a host of options here. A fancy gateau might be a little beyond most little bakers, but kids can always help with the mixing and measuring, even if the end result is a little advanced. Cakes offer a lot of family fun, both to bake and to eat.

Cereal cakes

Cereal cakes such as corn flakes and crisped rice are perennial favourites and incredibly simple to make. The chocolate versions remain the most popular, but try syrup or honey cereal cakes for a chewy, delicious alternative.

Decorating

Whether you’ve made cakes, cookies or anything else that can be decorated, this is often the most fun stage. You can use a variety of edible ingredients including different colours of icing, individual sweets or pieces of fruit, for a healthier alternative.

You could offer suggestions and assistance for little ones who are a little unsure of what they want to do, but otherwise, this is a great opportunity to let their creative juices flow and allow their imagination to run wild.
