We came across this lemon drizzle cake recipe watching the brilliant River Cottage Bites programmes. I’m recovering from a recent serious accident involving my eye and in the early recovery days had been watched rather a lot of television and River Cottage was one of my favourites. As I recovered I managed to do some baking with the kids and we all really enjoyed it, for me it was great to be getting back towards normality.

It was the twins’ birthday over the weekend so we let them choose, bake, design and decorate their own birthday cakes. Baking your own cakes is far more fun and much cheaper than buying a ready made cake, as well as being way more satisfying. Ok, so the decorating may not look the most professional but that is part of the attraction, especially as the children get involved and do it themselves, thoroughly enjoying it on the way.

This is a really tasty chocolate cake recipe which proved easy to make. The icing may be a bit rich for some tastes but we all loved it.

These banana and oat thickies are a fantastic, filling breakfast drink. I find them great as I often don’t fancy a bowl of cereal or toast in the mornings. The oats keep you full for most of the morning until lunchtime.

The kids love them too and they can do loads to help out – chopping, spooning and turning on the blender (with adult supervision of course). I’m up early and my youngest daughter likes to make sure she is up and dressed so she can help me make them.

At Saucepan Kids, we believe that by getting kids involved in growing and cooking their own food, they’ll have a more varied appetite. They'll also be healthier and hopefully have some fun along the way!

We love letting the kids help out in the kitchen (apart from the certain mess of course!) but they love it too so we would like to share some of our favourite recipes in case you might like to try them out for your selves.

We'd love to hear what you think?

How about getting the kids to make their own flapjacks for their lunchboxes?
All I had to was to take them out of the oven!

Trust me, they taste as good as they look...
