Take a look at these fabulous Mini Free Formed Apple Pies from Tickle Fingers. Easy enough for the youngest chef to get stuck in with.
Each week we welcome anyone to come and share their recipes that encourage kids into the kitchen. You are welcome to link up new or old recipes and please do come back as many times as you please. Each linky is open for a month and each week I will cook something new with my children and blog about it. My posts always include a mention for anyone who has joined in and all entries are also posted on my Pinterest Board. I will also tweet about your posts and recipes. I really look forward to see what everyone has been up to each week in the kitchen.
This week I had both girls in the kitchen. Star doesn't often join in, she says that when Boo gets her own restaurant she will be the waitress, which I think means that she doesn't much enjoy the cooking. However, Boo really wanted to make some bread this week and Star wanted her to play with her, so she made a deal, help her cook and then they can play together. I sometimes wonder which one is the eldest! Of course Star had to be a little silly and there was twice as much mess as usual, but it was lovely to see them working together.
- 450g strong white bread flour
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp easy-blend dried yeast
- 1/2 tsp caster sugar
- 200ml warm milk
- 100ml warm water
- sift the flour and salt into a large bowl and stir in the yeast and sugar.
- make a well in the centre and add the milk
- add the water a little at a time, stirring until you have a soft dough
- turn out the dough and knead for about 10 minutes
- place into a lightly oiled bowl and leave until doubled in size
- divide dough into ten equal pieces and shape into flat rounds about 9cm diameter.
- place the rounds onto a lightly greased baking sheet spacing hem well apart
- cover with a clean tea towel and leave for 1/2 hour
- preheat the oven to 200C/gas mark 6
- brush the rolls with milk
- bake the rolls for about 15 minutes until lightly browned.
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
