baking, cooking, kids

A bit absent lately…… Then the Great British Bake Off????

Hola, as they say in Spain!  So the wedding was brilliant – more photos will come in a separate post – I need to do it justice really (and ask my Sis if I can post pictures!).


A whirlwind weekend, then we ditched the yucky UK weather and headed to Lanzarote….. Sunshine, and a pool and kids club!  What more could we ask……


I still crocheted a bit, and then relaxed by the pool, swam and the kids learned to dive……

Back home early this morning, and after waking the kids up at 10am…. Yep!!!!!!  They’ve decided to have a bake off.

I’m very proud I’ve let them both cook from a very early age – and they both love it.  But today was competition time – Banana and oat muffins……..

One went digital, the other old school with his sweet shop scales and oz weights

All by themselves, they made the mixes………. and loaded the cases

In true bake off criteria, all muffins should look the same, have the same consistency, and size………. ummmmmm

20 minutes later………

I can confirm they are both delicious, but the winner has to be the blue one’s – with a more consistent shape!

Now – I wonder who was left to clear up the mess……
