Baking with Kids

I bake a lot, but I don't always let my kids help. Sometimes it's for an order, but mostly it's my quiet time.  It's like my relaxation, and I cherish that.  But occasionally I do projects just with the kids.  They LOVE to bake and ask all the time.  My mom just picked up some kid baking sets that include a mini muffin pan, spatula, measuring spoons, whisk, wooden spoon, and apron.  They have just been itching to use them.  Well I found a toddler cookbook at the library and found the perfect recipe for them to make.  Mini banana muffins!  I had them help measure out all the ingredients, mix the batter, and slice the banana to put on top. They even scooped out the batter to put into the muffin cups.  They were very proud of the job they did, although if you ask L he will proudly tell you that he "xploded the oil all over the place"!  I think you can tell from the pictures they loved doing it.

Fun! They did a great job!

Have that cookbook too and was wondering if we should give them a try!

The cookbook was neat, but I found that their were only a few things my kids would make and eat.

They really did have a great time, and are enjoying telling everyone they meet all about the muffins they made!
