We have been really really busy the last couple of weeks with our Bake With Bake Off Challenges. It's not very often that I bake without the kids so they have been in the kitchen with me a lot. Not only that but we also had a birthday party for the Little Man and the kids helped me to make sandwiches, sausage rolls and three different types of cookies.

We even made a scrummy chocolate cake together using Bee Berries All in One Cake recipe.
Today, I caved in and bought the Little Man a boxed cake mix for Peppa Pig cupcakes. We have all the ingredients at home to make cupcakes but there is something about these boxed kits that are so appealing to little ones.
Last week we were joined by All Past Midnight who linked a fabulous post with lots of tips of baking with small children. It is really worth a look.
I've already pinned the post to my Kids in the Kitchen Pinterest board as I do with everyone that links up.
Follow Anne's board Kids In The Kitchen on Pinterest.
I also share posts that link up wherever I can so do come and join us if you have a recipe for children or have been cooking with your children.
Bee Berries All in One Cake
225g self raising flour
225g caster sugar
225g softened butter
we added 1 tbs cocoa powder and decorated the cake with chocolate butter cream made with 100g soft butter with 200g icing sugar and 1 tbs cocoa powder.
Put the flour, butter, sugar and eggs into a big bowl and mix thoroughly. We like to use a wooden spoon, but you can use a mixer if you wish.
divide the mixture into two 8inch cake tins
bake at 180c for about 25 minutes until springy to the touch. (you can use a skewer to check that cake is cooked if you wish)
mix the cocoa powder, butter and icing sugar together in a bowl and use to decorate the cake when it has cooled.
So now it's over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you've cooked,
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)
