Family Baking Classes

ErinAfter running 3 successful taster baking classes at the lovely Get Cooking school we’ve decided to hold a family baking class this summer holidays.Jigs & son

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!


The first   Family Baking class will be held on Thursday 11th August and  runs from 10 -1pm with lunch included I’m inviting. Families can  come and have fun baking together, getting our kitchen messy instead of yours!
DC002-625Cakes you can bake:
  • 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!
We will also sit down to lunch together from design it yourself sandwiches. You and the kids get to choose how you want to fill your own rolls using a range of gourmet & kid friendly fillings. We’ll also have  a range of teas from our vintage china and home made cordials and of course, cake!  You then  leave with your cake to take home.
