Why we loved it:
During lockdown Riya discovered she had a talent she didn’t know about before, baking! Baking is such a fun hobby.
Measuring out the ingredients needs careful precision, mixing, kneading, whipping and creaming ingredients together can be really hard work and requires lots of different muscle groups, which means a baking session can be a really great workout! What makes it even better, is that we get to share what we create with others! We love that Riya now has such a generous hobby!
Have you ever baked something for someone else?
Ingredients:100g margarine or butter
100g caster sugar
2 large eggs
100g of self raising flour
100g of chocolate chips
Half tablespoon of vanilla essence
Preheat the oven to 190C/ Gas mark 5 and prepare your cupcake tray with cases.
Take a large mixing bowl and add the butter or margarine in with the caster sugar and use a whisk to beat until light and fluffy
Slowly add in the egg, a little bit at a time, and once fully whisked in add in your vanilla essence.
Sift the flour into the mixture and fold it in gently. Once you can’t see any more flour left in the bowl, add in your chocolate chips!
Spoon the mixture into your cupcake cases. Place in the oven for 20 minutes (make sure you get an adult to help when putting them in).
Check regularly to see if they are cooked and get an adult to remove them when they are done!
