Baking {The Ordinary Moments}

I have cheated this week and pulled a photo from the archive…

I love to bake. ever since I can remember I have loved to make cakes and then eat the rewards! Now having children its become even more of a fun and rewarding activity.

Moo loves to join in and help. I always try and involve her in the preparation process and I let her pour all the ingredients in and mix them together, even with the complicated recipes! I think its good to get them involved! She has become to love it just as much as me.

The most enjoyable part for Moo is the end part, the licking of the spoon! Now up until a few months ago, I had not enlightened her to this, but she sneakily tried a bit and I managed to capture it without her seeing and I love the picture, I loved the way she gently swiped her finger along the to get some mixture and it made my heart melt when she tried it for the first time, it took me back to when I tried it. That to me is what baking as a family is about, the little bits in between, getting to eat the leftover cake mixture!


This is an ordinary moment in our house, something simple which me and Moo love to do, and of course we get some yummy cakes at the end too!

I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments

    Beautiful photo!
    My girls have wised up to the licking the spoon and bowl so instead of helping me bake they just hover around me in the kitchen constantly asking whether I’ve finished yet so they can lick all the mixture off everything!!

      I remember I always used to pester my mum to make cakes, purely for the cake mixture!

    That’s such a lovely photo. I think this is a firm fave in any childhood. Always standing by the mixing bowl praying that mum leaves a yummy spoonful of mixture. It’s so nice.

      I agree, Moo enjoys the whole baking process but I think mostly enjoys the polishing off, of the mixture!

      Totally agree, takes up a good hour and then you get great treats at the end of it too! x

    What a gorgeous photo – I love that she didn’t know you were taking it. But she’s right of course – the licky scrapers are the best bits!

    Aw this is lovely and I agree that licking the bowl is one of the most amazing things about baking. I have such fond memories of doing it as a child. This photo is lovely too, the light is gorgeous. x
