Baking with children - easy recipes

Jammy Thumbprints

200g self-raising flour
100g caster sugar
100g butter
1 egg
About 4 tbsp strawberry jam

Mix butter & sugar, add flour & egg.
Should make a stiff dough.
Shape into balls makes 10-12.
Squash slightly in the centre with your thumb.
Fill with jam. Only a little is required.

Bake 180c for 10-15 mins.

My 8 year old loves making these & can do it my herself now. I usually just help weighing the flour which can splurge out & putting them in the oven.






5 cup loaf

1 cup self raising flour
1 cup porridge oats
1 cup milk
1 cup dried fruit (I usually use 1/2 sultanas or raisans & 1/2 fresh apple diced)
1 cup sugar (I usually use 3/4 else it seems quite sweet)


You can also add cinnamon, dried apricots, walnuts, glacier cherries. Whatever you fancy really. Mix thoroughly & pour into a greased loaf tin. Takes about an hour 180c.

Really easy & perfect for young children as no weighing & everything just flung in. Its slightly healthier than normal cake as no margarine or butter & contains oats but obviously still contains sugar.
