My Little Baker
I always try to rescue our overripe bananas by baking Banana bread which is always popular sa aking mag-Ama.
Poj usually just watch whenever I cook or bake but this time he wanted to get his hands dirty. And I'm one to encourage him in whatever he wants to do/learn kaya go, go go =)
He was really interested and everytime I add a new ingredient he'll ask 'Ina, what's that?" I also let him decide how much raisins and walnuts he wanted. Thank goodness he didn't go overboard coz I'm not a big fan of raisins, lol. And because we always tell him whenever we cook that he needs to behave because we are busy, kaya nung araw na yun sabi din nya, "Ama, busy si Jace!" kalerky!
I let him watch me put it in the oven and explained the process to him. We set the time together and told him the timer will go off as soon as our cake is done.
I think it was easy for him to understand coz they play 'kitchen' at nursery plus he was given a toy kitchen for Christmas last year. And he still enjoys playing with it now.
The smile on his face was priceless when I showed him his cake. I gave it to him when it was cool enough to touch.
And as they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and I think my little baker is pleased!
