I love a good cake, my kids love baking and I believe that they should be helping in the kitchen and learning early. Plus busy hands can't cause mischief! So to celebrate national baking week we made some cakes. Now my first port of call is always Bero. I've had a Bero recipe book as long as I can remember and pretty much every woman in my family has had one , mine is passed on from my Nana so it's really really old but I love it. I do have a shiny new one as you can still buy them, but the old one holds sentimental value for me !
We followed this recipe, and started by weighing and measuring 2 eggs, 3oz caster Sugar, 3oz self raising flour, this is good number work for the kids and I like to have everything to hand ready to go.
Next we Heated oven to 180ºC,and set out our cake cases in muffin tins cracked eggs into a bowl, whisked lightly, added the sugar and whisked well until thick, creamy and almost white in colour. Folded in the flour and we were ready to fill up the cake cases.
Then we set the timer popped them
In the oven and in no time at all lovely fresh sponge cakes for us .....
And a great big pile of dishes too!
What's your favourite thing to bake with the family ?
