Baking is a fun way to spend valuable time and bond with your kids. It’s an opportunity to share time, create delicious desserts and build memories with your little ones.
I’m so glad that the Maya Kitchen has collaborated with Mommy Bloggers Philippines. We got the chance to be part of mom and kid baking workshop at the Maya Kitchen Culinary Arts Center. My son and I had a very fun afternoon last Saturday. We both learned a lot from the workshop and I’m one of the proud moms because Aki made very delicious cupcakes at a young age of 5.
Now, I’ll be sharing with you the Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes that Aki baked. I hope you’ll enjoy baking together with your kids, most especially that bonding time with them is becoming more scarce because some of us are working moms and some are busy with other household tasks.
This is an easy-to-follow recipe. My son is only 5 years old and he was able to follow the instructions very well. Ready?
Here are the ingredients:
1 ¼ cups MAYA All-Purpose Flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup butter
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup milk
½ cup strawberry jam
1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
Strawberry Whipped Cream
¹/³ cup strawberry jam
1 cup whipping cream
Let’s get started! Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C for 30 minutes. Line a 3-oz 12-hole muffin pan with cupcake liners. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Set aside. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and beat well.
Add the dry ingredients and milk. Blend well. Stir in strawberry jam and lemon juice. Mix until well-combined.
Pour batter into the prepared pan, up to 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until done. Allow to cool.
Now, it’s time to prepare the whipped cream. Stir strawberry jam to soften. In a mixer, beat (cold) whipping cream until stiff. Fold in strawberry jam.
To assemble, cut about 1 inch from the tip of your piping bag. Pipe strawberry whipped cream on top and make a hole in the middle using a teaspoon. Put some sprinkles in the middle.
And there you have it! This recipe yields up to 12 cupcakes.
I hope you are able to follow. Another good thing about baking with kids is that they tend to be more open towards eating things that they did or helped in preparing. It creates a sense of open-mindedness towards consuming the food.
That’s it! Share with us your baking experience with your kids and comment below. Happy bonding! 🙂
