It’s school holidays here in Australia, and hopefully all the parents of small children are having lots of fun with the kids home all day! But just in case you’re running out of activity ideas to keep little hands busy, how about making some cupcakes together? 😀
Ok ok, I know baking with kids can get messy and crazy, but it’s such a great skill to teach them, and if you can get them helping in the kitchen from a young age you’ll thank yourself later. It’s so awesome when teenagers know how to cook and start helping with the weekly meals and baking! And you’ll have a much better chance of that happening if you get them into cooking while they’re little. 🙂
This is our favourite, simple, cupcake recipe – you can use it as a base for any kind of grain-free cupcake. Swap the almond meal for pepita meal and omit the nuts on top to make them nut free. Make it with ganache for icing, or leave off the ganache and sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut sugar. Whipped cream and sliced strawberries on top is good instead of ganache, too. Try adding some fresh blueberries, or chopped apple and cinnamon, or chocolate chips to the mixture – or maybe a blob of homemade jam in the middle!
They’re super easy and quick to make, and the kids will enjoy decorating them… Here’s how Cassia decorated hers one day – with blueberries and basil leaves! 😀 Ha ha! We hope you love them. Happy holidays, and have fun!!
