    We love making chocolate cakes

  2. Jane Adams says:

    I love baking packet sponge cake with my 4 year old because I can basically leave her to it as all the ingredients are in the pack and if I lay them out for her she can just get on with mixing and spreading – she loves it so this book would be amazing :)

  3. Kelly A says:

    We love baking with the Edmonds cook book. Yesterday we baked their blueberry muffins. Super easy & really delicious & other than cracking the egg the kids could do all the rest!

  4. Donna Carswell says:

    I love making biscuits with my 3 1/2 year old daughter as she loves putting all of the ingredients into the cake mixer one by one and watching them mix together into something different. She then takes great delight in licking the bowl and the mixer attachment then we spend ages together shaping the balls and putting them on the tray. She stands hovering over the oven watching them cook asking if they are ready yet and then has to wait a while for them to cool. There is never an argument while doing this and the look on her face is priceless when she can finally eat one or two. It reminds me of learning to bake with my Mum and it is still one of my favourite memories and I hope it will also be one of my daughters early memories :) This book would be great to gather more ideas and would link in fantastically with some of the cooking she also does at Playcentre!

    My boys love helping make macaroni and cheese. Specially as they love demolishing it afterwards!! Its their fav dinner

  6. Selma says:

    We like making jelly moulds and assorted muffins, and forgetting my son’ s pasta, with any nice sauce!

  7. Cindy says:

    We love making ginger bread men the recipe is so easy the kids take turns at adding the ingredents .The kids all so like to make other shapes with there cookie cutters not just giner bread men

  8. Tamar R says:

    Me & My Boys Enjoy Making Afghans And Triple Chocolate Muffins For Our School Lunch Boxes.Yummy !

  9. April says:

    I like to bake cookies with my girls so they can use the cookie cutters and then decorate themselves. Lots of mess = Lots of fun :-)

  10. Penny says:

    We make choc-chip banana muffins, as I find they always work, even if we lose count of how many scoops of flour, or forget the egg! The banana keeps them moist so we don’t have to worry about over mixing etc.

  11. Teena Halford says:

    We like making Cheese Muffins

  12. Jaimee says:

    We love making shortbread. We also enjoy using the cookie cutters to make lots of different shapes.

  13. Aimee Gibson says:

    Any recipe that involves Licking The Bowl!

  14. Rochelle Weston-Arnold says:

    It’s a toss-up between my own banana bread recipe and pikelets :)

  15. Gretchen says:

    Muffins – they choose a different combination of flavours every time, and the bowl-licking part is the best bit of all :-)

  16. cress says:

    carrot and raisin muffins. although i have to hide the qty of raisins i actually need for the recipe! she’s fascinated by watching the flour ‘disappear’ into the mixture and gets so excited when she sees the finished result – worth the mess every time :)

  17. Amy Tutt says:

    Sugar cookies are the best! Easy to make and fun to roll out and make shapes. Don’t take long to cook and lots of fun to decorate. Also the dough makes loads of cookies so I normally freeze half of it ready to pull out for a rainy afternoon :)

  18. Camille says:

    My 2 year old likes making Anzac biscuits “for daddy”. I used to make gingerbread men with my niece and nephew when they were little – that’s a fun one but takes a bit of supervision.

  19. Joann says:

    We love – me and little miss 4, to bake anything that requires lots of measuring such as gingerbread- and using cutters is always a bonus

  20. Joann radford says:

    Gingerbread- lots of measuring for miss 4, and fun with cutters

  21. Kara says:

    My daughters (2 and 4) love making “hot dogs”. These are just puff pastry sheets, cut out with dog shaped cutters and brushed with milk before cooking. Very simple and tasty!

  22. Rebecca says:

    my 3yr old son has been ‘helping’ bake chocolate chip cookies since he was old enough to sit on the bench. He’s getting better at correctly measuring dry ingredients and breaking eggs.

  23. Rachael says:

    We like making pikelets as it is easy to get the kids involved, the younger ones can whisk and sift and my elder daughter can help pour the batter into the pan. We make up the recipe each time as we go along, adding mashed bananas, buttermilk, ricotta – whatever we have that day!

  24. Simone Andrews says:

    My daughter really enjoys making chocolate brownie. She loves the process, but licking the bowl and eating the brownie just a few minutes after it comes out of the oven are definitely the highlight for her!

  25. Charlotte Scott says:

    We like making bread. We make different shapes and twists and add our favourite topping.

  26. Otaki Kindergarten says:

    Our favourite process cooking is making pizza. Pizza making is available everyday for our older children who come 3 times a week.

  27. Marie says:
