After running 3 successful taster baking classes at the lovely Get Cooking school we’ve decided to hold a family baking class this summer holidays.
I love getting children involved in baking. It’s great to be familiar with a kitchen from an early age and to have some knowledge of where food comes from and what you can do with ingredients. I learned to bake with my older sister and so want to inspire other families to bake together. It was so lovely to have some family involvement in the first 3 classes we decided to hold a child friendly baking class where kids can learn to cook alongisde mum, dad, brothers,sisters, aunties uncles or grandma’s & grandads!
- Banana & walnut- a deliciously moist loaf banana cake with a vanilla, cream cheese frosting filled with plump raisins & walnuts. It won lots of praise when served at Farsley Festival even with people who thought they didn’t like banana cake!
- Banana & Chocolate- similar cake but for chocoholics we substitute the walnuts for chocolate chips & add extra chocolateyness ( raisins can be left out too)
- Rhubarb & Strawberry- beautifully moist cake bursting with seasonal fruit. A great way to get one of your 5 a day!
