50 Fantastic Baking Ideas

Laura SummersLaura’s Lovely Blog

We have two favourite go-to baking recipes at the moment.

Banana bread which is great for using up over ripe bananas, and oat cookies which are fab messy fun as the children can get really stuck in and shape the biscuits.

Plus they taste delicious gooey and hot from the oven.

We love making flapjack as it’s nice and simple yet so delicious!

As long as the adult melts the butter and sugar together it’s great to get the kids to help measuring the ingredients, stirring in the oats, and adding the mix to the tin.

Cupcakes and Flapjacks are always popular in my house.

Becky O’HaireCuddle Fairy

We love to make pancakes, brownies & chocolate chip cookies the best. Baking is the favourite as they like to scoop the flour, and other ingredients. But measuring out chocolate chips is the best!

Rachel BitmeadIndecisive Mum

My kids love baking Jam tarts and scones. Oh and Victoria sponge with sprinkles on. Easy and delicious.

Jam tarts, they are quick and simple and I remember making them with my mum when I was a child too.

I love making cookies with boys. They very easy to make and seem to turn out well even if the boys have been a bit rough stirring the mixture (unlike fairy cakes that you need to be more gentle with). I always do two different flavours so that they can have a bowl each.

Our favourite savoury recipe is pizzas, we do a simple bread mixture for the base so everyone can have a go at mixing and kneading.

Once I’ve rolled them out the kids can spread in the tomato topping, sprinkle the cheese and pick their toppings.

They are always proud of having made their own dinner and they taste way better than shop bought ones.

We make a lot of flapjack – so tasty, but so easy to make! It’s Easy to modify too, to make it chocolatey, fruity or whatever else!

Chocolate Rice Krispy Cakes or Cornflake Cakes are great to bake with kids. Simple, fun and delicious!

Fairy cakes are so simple and quick to bake in the oven. It also means there is only 6 or so at a time so the requests for cake after baking don’t go on for too long!

Fairy cakes are also easy for Toddler H to decorate.

We love making cupcakes together. My eldest is only 4 but she is really good at piping icing so she always asks to make cupcakes at the weekends.

Brownies! My daughter loves making up different flavour combinations for them and they are really simple to make!

We love baking rainbow cakes together, my little one is now 6 and really gets involved.

She adores the end result, although we could do with working on our icing skills.

Emma Lofthouse-BurchThey Grow So Quick

I love making muffins with little ones. They are a very forgiving bake and don’t require too much mixing. And of course they are delicious!

Sarah WhiteWhimsical Mumblings

Flapjacks. They are easy, fun and so YUMMY!

Gingerbread Men without a doubt! My son is 6 and we’ve baked them together since he was wee. He particularly likes eating the raw mixture.

Chocolate Chip Muffins! Every time we have bananas that are going off, I mash them and add them to a basic muffin mix, add chocolate chips and cocoa powder and they always taste great!

Esther HancockInside Out And About
