Baking with Children

The other day I bought a young baker's set . . . and even though my granddaughter is only nine months old, I'm already dreaming of the time when I can tie an apron around her, stand her on a stool, and watch her mix batter and lick the spoon.

Do you bake with your kids?  Have they discovered the joy of turning out some lovely, delicious, preservative-free something?

King Arthur Flour is featuring a blog about baking with kids, so I thought I'd pass it on.  Enjoy!

Note:  my book club read THE WEDNESDAY WARS, a story that features . . . cream puffs.  So I've been baking them every night, because on book club night I intend to build a croque em bouche.  :-)  Photos to come!

croque en bouche is so much fun! Mine tilted, and started leaning. Thank goodness for sticky caramel to hold it all together. Have fun...please take pictures!

I have been teaching Tori to knead bread. I give her a little batch and in no time at all she will say "let's trade" (for my larger batch). My mom taught me to love the feel of kneading dough and I have been determined to pass it on.
