As you know I am passionate about cooking with kids and one of the things that make me sad is that my boys can not learn to cook and bake with my mum like I did, especially as this coming Sunday 2nd October is Grandparents Day. But I am delighted to be working on this fab #CookSomethingGrand campaign about cooking with your grandkids.
I love this time of year. Summer fruits are readily available and this yogurt and berry crunch is a great after lunch treat or even perfect for a decadent breakfast. As it is no bake and super simple to put together it is great for getting kids in the kitchen and you can mix up the fruits depending on the season or based on your child’s tastes.
There is a special place in heaven for kids that can bake amazing cakes. Not only that there is something wonderful about having a child that can pull off making the perfect victoria sponge cake. The queen of all cakes, a sponge cake can seem really simple, but can be tricky to get just right. The Vitoria Sponge is the perfect tea time winner and classic cake that has been around since Queen Victoria’s times. Delicious, simple and moreish and we like ours with strawberry jam and fresh cream, although a purist might tell you it should be jam only.
