This week we've been in the kitchen twice! Once to cook pancakes and then again to make some fork biscuits.
Last week we had a lovely post from The Beesley Buzz where the family went to cookery school. I was really jealous, it sounds fantastic, I'd love to do something like this with my littlies.
Please come an join in this week, I'll tweet about your post and give you a mention next week if you do. The rules are simple, get the kids in the kitchen and then write a post and link it up. Or you could even link up an old post, I don't mind.
Boo decided that she would like to make pancakes so I printed off a recipe for her. Two points to make here, pancakes are not only for Shrove Tuesday, we have them whenever they take our fancy. Also, I don't need a recipe for pancakes, they are so simple. However, this is a learning process, and Boo is just learning to read so I wanted her to read the recipe for herself.
So, in short, we mixed up the flour, milk and eggs. Then mummy heated a little oil in a pan until it was very hot. We poured in the batter, swirled it around and cooked one side. Then mummy expertly tossed the pancake over to cook the other side. I did get Boo to try and take a photo of me doing this, but we didn't get one worth showing.
Then at the weekend we made fork biscuits, so called because you squish them with a fork before cooking. Boo and the Little Man really enjoyed this.
250 grams of butter at room temperature
125 grams of caster sugar
300 grams of self-raising flour
We measured out the butter and sugar into a bowl and then mixed them until smooth with a wooden spoon.
We stirred in the flour and made a soft sticky dough
We rolled the dough into little balls
We put the balls of dough onto the greased baking tray, leaving a space between them
We squished the balls of dough with the back of a fork which had been dipped in water
We cooked the biscuits for 15 minutes at 180C or Gas mark 4
Now it's your turn. Join my linky and show everyone what your kids have been cooking this week.
I would love you to display my badge to help spread the word.
