Make cakes of course!!
Today’s cake making class was a classic, cornflake cakes! As if we didn’t have enough chocolate in the house we decided to venture to the local shops this morning in the drizzle to buy our ingredients. When we head to the shops, Rowan likes to take his own shopping basket, which i just find adorable (and so do all the older generation of the town i live in!) This is Rowan with his shopping basket on a previous trip to the shops.
Rowan carried the chocolate bar of course whilst i loaded everything else up under the pushchair. I had to convince Rowan on the walk back home that the park was not a good idea in the rain and he seemed to accept it quite well without a meltdown – yay!
I love the simplicity of this recipe, 100g milk chocolate, 3 tablespoons golden syrup and 50g unsalted butter all melted on medium for 1.5 minutes until melted in the microwave and then mix with 75g cornflakes (or rice krispies). Rowan loved the mixing and having a cheeky lick of the spoon. I helped him dish the mixture into the muffin cases, however he is getting very good at this on his own and didn’t make too much mess! We may have used a spatula at the end, so we could lick the mixture from the bowl shhhh!
And here they are:
They are currently in the fridge chilling and we’ll have one sometime this afternoon, i hope we don’t get too greedy and leave some for daddy!
