A Simple Muffin Recipe Your Kids Will Love

If there is one other thing that’s great about kitchens, it’s that it brings family members together. For most grown-ups, it’s a part of the house where they create the food they put on the dinner table, but for children, it’s a magical place filled with delicious possibilities.

However, most kids are not that eager to jump on the chance to actually learn how meals and dishes come to be; after all, they see it as a chore. But if you know the right items to bring on the menu, then inviting them to lend a hand on the kitchen can be as easy as taking candy from a baby. You just have to ask yourself the ultimate question- what kinds of food excite them the most? The popular answer- sweet, baked goods.

It’s no secret that kids love pastries especially if it comes with a sweet surprise. Whether it’s the classic chocolate chip cookies or the crowd-favourite cream-filled cupcakes, you can never go wrong with a good ol’ pastry. To give you a head start on this wonderful bonding activity with your little ones, La Serre Bistro and Boulangerie, has shared with us (and you!) a simple muffin recipe (serves four) you could try.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

2 eggs

100g vegetable oil

100g sugar

100g flour

7g baking powder

1 vanilla pod/ 1 tsp vanilla essence

How the magic happens:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
  2. Let your kid combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl until everything’s completely mixed.
