Cooking with Kids – Lemon and Blueberry Muffin Recipe

The kids love baking and helping out it’s also a great way to get them trying new food and ingredients so we’ve been cooking our way through the alphabet and teaching them new methods in the kitchen.

The kids always help weight out ingredients, having a recipe that is in g and oz means that we can swap between the two (not going to work on a delicate recipe but works great for muffins and most cakes!) – so that my youngest can read the number up to 20 and the oldest number in the hundred’s.

Measuring out the ingredients the kids then creamed together the flora buttery and the caster sugar, cracked in the eggs and then zested the lemon.

To the mixture they added the flour and baking powder and mixed it together. Muffins are a great cake to make with kids as the mixture can be lumpy and it doesn’t affect how great they taste at the end.
