My boys are loving coloring these days so we pulled out markers and coloring sheets and enjoyed coloring as I read our story, Blueberry Cake. This is a sweet story about a bear who wants his mom to make blueberry cake, but he must go out and get the blueberries in the forest first!
Easy Tip for Baking with Kids
Okay, so for my baking tip! Usually when we bake as a family it feels chaotic and often leads to extra messes and fighting between siblings. In order to help prevent some of that I decided to split the ingredients down the middle giving each of the boys the same amount of ingredients. This helped them to know exactly what they were going to be able to pour and mix and stir. This is my new favorite baking hack! No more fighting over who's going to do what!
We made this delicious blueberry yogurt morning cake from a devotional book I have, and it did not disappoint!! It's the perfect afternoon treat with a cup of tea or a yummy breakfast. with fruit and coffee.
Have you ever read anything by Shauna Niequist? I love all of her books and definitely recommend her devotional called Savor. The devotionals are short and sweet and it includes tons of delicious recipes such as this blueberry cake!
