Fun recipes for kids!

Posted on

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes!!!!!Summer is almost here- and that means summer vacation! I remember spending my summer days in the kitchen with cookbooks I’d gotten out of the library, trying new things. Sometimes I baked with mom- and sometimes I ventured out on my own and learned valuable lessons like you can’t put the whole egg in when the recipe calls for just egg whites!

As an adult, I love baking with kids. I love creating recipes that make kids smile. My childhood interest turned into a lifelong hobby for me, and it’s fun to share that with a new audience.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite kid-friendly recipes that have been posted on Easybaked over the years.

Some of these are featured in my cookbook for kids, “Life is Sweet, Baking Devotions for Kids”.

As I share photos of these recipes, click on the photo to be taken to the recipe!

Easy Recipes- ones that kids can make on their own or with a little adult supervision.

Cinnamon Cheesecake Sundaes– use wonton wrappers to make crispy little cups. Fill them up with a no-bake cheesecake and sundae toppings. Kids love to make their own creative sundaes!

Nutter Butter Flip Flops- less baking and more art! Simply dip Nutter Butter cookies in Wilton’s candy melts and draw on flip-flop straps. It might take a little practice, but learning to dip things in chocolate is a skill everyone should learn!

Tie-Dye Cake- If your kids love color, this cake will make them smile! You color cake mix in all the shades of the rainbow and then bake it into a swirling masterpiece. With blue frosting. Everyone loves blue frosting- right?!?

Hamburger Cookies- They look like hamburgers but taste like chocolate. What kid wouldn’t love that! Easy and quick to make- and very cute when served with those mini potato sticks as french fries!

Earthworm Cupcakes- Kids will love making these jello “worms” and poking them into Oreo crumbs. Not just your USUAL dirt cupcakes- because this time the worms look REAL!

“Pup”cakes- If your kids are looking for someone special to bake for… try these super-easy cupcake treats for dogs! Peanut butter happiness for everyone!

Confetti Kisses- here’s that chance to learn about egg whites! A little supervision if they’ve never divided an egg before- and help with beaters- but add some Jell-O and you have such a fun treat!

Recipes for kid’s parties: These are fun ideas to surprise kids with. Maybe they help create the masterpiece- or you create it for them. These are a little more difficult, but so much fun!

Chocolate Strawberry Layer Cake!

Posted on

Chocolate Strawberry layer cake
Such an easy and refreshing dessert!  If you need something beautiful but quick, this is your recipe!

INGREDIENTS:

  • One boxed chocolate cake mix (with water, oil and eggs to make according to package)
  • One (8 oz) container of Cool Whip
  • One (7 oz) container of Jet Puffed Marshmallow fluff
  • One tub of ready-made chocolate frosting
  • About 25 ripe strawberries.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Make cake according to box and bake in 2-  8 or 9 inch round pans.
  • Cool cakes, trim off tops to level each cake and cut each cake into two layers
  • Mix Cool Whip and marshmallow fluff together until smooth.
  • Spoon frosting into bowl and heat for about 30 seconds in microwave.  Stir.  It should be a hot fudge consistency.
  • Wash and slice strawberries lengthwise (I used an egg slicer to make this easier).

  • Place one layer of cake on serving plate.  Spread with a bit of melted frosting and a bit of the cream mixture.
  • Place strawberries along the edge with points facing out.  Use small pieces to fill in the middle.
