The Food Exchange – Baking with children

I love baking with kids and I still remember some of my first bakes and how proud I was.
When Lucy and I thought about a Food Exchange topic for this month I think we both remembered our own childhood and how great it was to get to know the world of baking.
Lucy told me about one of the first things she ever baked: Cornflakes cakes – and I told her about the first cake I ever made: Fanta cake. Fanta cake obviously doesn’t taste of Fanta or Lemonade but it is really tasty and moist and all the measurements are in mugs, so there is no weighing involved.
Cornflakes cakes are just as easy to make and there are soooo delicious! They don’t even need to be baked and I am convinced that kids love the mess when everything is mixed together 🙂


Lucy suggested a recipe for Cornflakes cakes to me. You can find it here.

It only has 4 ingredients and kids won’t need a lot of help – apart from maybe heating the chocolate and measuring the ingredients, depending on the age.

Once ready my Cornflakes cakes were gone really quickly – all eaten by adults :). They are so delicious and I can already picture the proud smile on the face of kids that like baking!

Thanks for this recipe, Lucy!


P.s.: I am so sorry for not posting very frequently at the moment…there is just so much to do for me outside the blogging-world at the moment: we’re expecting our first child in a couple of weeks and on top of that we just bought a house that needs to be decorated before…you can imagine that we are very busy but also very, very excited ;).

    Easter nests were one of my absolute favourites as a child – so easy to make, and so few ingredients required! (I still have a soft spot for them today, but only the homemade variety!)
