If you consider yourself a baking mogul, Jordans latest challenge will be right up your street.
There are thousands of different cake recipes out there that feature a wide range of ingredients. Cereals have often been used to create cakes, particularly cupcakes. If you’re looking for a new challenge then why not consider turning cereal into cake?
Bond over baking
You can bake a cake with practically any cereals you have in the home. As you will already have most of the ingredients, cereal cakes should prove pretty inexpensive to make, which is great if you want to whip up all manner of tasty treats while keeping an eye on your budget.Baking is a great way to get the kids into cooking. Teaching them how to follow a recipe and how to measure ingredients sets them up for later in life when they will need to stand on their own two feet and cook for themselves. It’s never too early to teach your kids how to cook, and simple recipes using their favourite breakfast cereals can be a fantastic introduction to this life skill and enjoyable hobby.
Baking is also a lovely way to bond with your kids. As you work together in the kitchen you get a chance to chat and spend some quality time with one another. Plus, it’s something fun to do on a rainy day when going outdoors is out of the question.
Scrumptious cereal cakes
Using ingredients and cereals such as oats, granola or muesli, it’s easy to make great tasting cheesecakes that can be eaten as a filling snack between meals. Granola Rock Cakes are a tasty alternative to cookies and are quick and easy to make, perfect for busy parents who want to whip up a quick treat for the kids.
