Bring The Great British Bake-Off To Your Own Kitchen

Get baking with your toddler and celebrate the return of the Great British Bake-Off in style. On your marks, get set – bake!

In honour of our favourite baking show, why not spend the afternoon making some treats with your children. Your little one may be tucked up in bed, but come 8pm you’ll be ready to sit back, relax and watch the professionals at work.

From simple angel cakes to rich chocolate brownies, what better way to get your child away from the TV than the yummy reward of baked treats? It’s a brilliant way to engage your child while spending some quality time together that you can enjoy too.

Why not start simple and check out our ‘Vanilla Cupcakes With Swirly Icing’ recipe, taken from no other than Mary Berry herself.

Feeling slightly more adventurous? Then take a look at our ‘Banana and Nutella Tartlets’ here.

Baking can be a great way to entertain and focus your child. In offering a baked reward for their efforts, your child will be more determined and likely to participate in the activity. Similarly, easy recipes like angel cakes can allow your child to use their imagination and enhance their creativity.

With the irresistible temptation of baked treats, your child is sure to love this!
