Simple Biscuits

These cookies were made by my 3 year daughter. They only require 3 ingredients so as you would imagine, they are very cheap and easy to make. We put jam inbetween two of ours but you could cut them out in any shape, ice them or even add chocolate chips!

Banana and Oat Pancakes 

My children and I love these! They are a perfect way of using up any over ripe bananas, and you can also add additional ingredients like, dried fruits or spices to them. We have them for breakfast, lunch and even as a snack. I have served mine with runny honey and banana but my daughter recommends them with ice cream!

Eva’s Cheese Scones 

Just recently my daughter has been really interested in baking. Some times it doesn’t go too well but I promised that I would publish one of her recipes! She is 3 years old and only needed a little guidance and help so they are very easy to make.

Makes 16 Scones
Ingredients: 

225g self raising flour 

50g butter, cubed

100g cheddar cheese, grated (plus extra for on top) 

100ml milk

1 tsp baking powder 

1. Preheat oven to 200C. Put baking tray in oven.

2. In a large bowl, sift the flour and baking powder. Add the butter. Rub it in with your fingertips until it forms into breadcrumbs. Stir in the cheese and mix until well combined.

3. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and gradually add the milk. Stir until it forms a firm dough. You may not need all of the milk so make sure you do not add all of it at once.

4. On a lightly floured side, roll out the dough so it is 2cm in thickness. Cut out scones with a cutter. Place in the now hot baking tray. Brush with milk and sprinkle on a little cheese.

5. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
