Peyton is at an age where I am trying to get her interested in helping in the kitchen beyond being my taste tester. Baking Class by Deanna F. Cook is geared to help with just that.
Baking Class is filled with kid-friendly recipes that will interest kids and get them engaged in the kitchen. And since this book is called Baking Class it’s filled with recipes for yummy treats!
There are a total of 7 chapters to take in. Chapter one focuses on getting kids comfortable in the kitchen and educating them about different baking terms and techniques.
Chapter 2: Good Morning Treats has recipes like toaster oven-tarts, cranberry orange scones, blueberry muffins and more. There are a total of 8 different breakfast themed recipes for your family to enjoy.
Chapter 3: Crackers and Quick Breads will teach your child how to make zucchini bread, banana bread, corn bread and more. These are the comfort foods everyone loves to eat and since it is winter time I see this being a popular chapter in our home.
Chapter 4: The Bread Bakery Do I need to say more? Your child will learn how to make their own pizza crust! They’ll even learn how to make braided bread and cinnamon rolls.
Chapter 5: The Cookie Jar, I’m sure this is the chapter most kids want to start with. Kids love cookies and there are some yummy recipes in here! The staple – chocolate chip cookies recipe is in here as well as snickerdoodles, ginger snaps and more.
Chapter 6: Save Room for Pie! Peyton discovered pie this past year and she cannot get enough. She’s excited to learn how to make the perfect pie crust and then make an apple pie. There’s also recipes for banana cream pies, peach crumble and more sweet treats.
Chapter 7: Cake and Cupcake Factory This is a fun chapter. Cakes are always a hit with kids. Now they can learn how to make a cake in a mug or how to make a cheesecake. There are several different recipes that are sure to get your child excited to learn how to make their own cakes.
Each recipe has step by step directions with pictures to help guide you and your child through the recipe. I love this because it lets the kids know if they are on the right path or need to change what they are doing.
