Tips and easy recipes for baking with kids!

Ola's Cupcakes

There has been a lot of cooking and baking going on this summer! I really enjoy cooking with my kids and helping others parents do the same. It’s a subject I’m passionate about, as I believe that cooking with kids helps them to embrace real food and develop a healthy relationship with food.


When it comes to cooking I think of it as an art – little pinch here a little pinch there designing it to your liking. When it comes to baking, well I feel it is more of a science. Not rocket science, but not to much room to deviate from the recipe or your cake might not turn out the way you intended, do you agree?


For that reason when baking with kids it’s a good idea to start off with recipes that are easy to follow. Recipes with simple steps that children can do themselves – supervised, of course – that yields delicious results so that they will be excited and want to bake again.
