My girl had been bugging me for ages to bake something together with her. But I don’t have an oven, no mixer, no measuring cups etc.
So, I was happy to try out this simple steam banana cake recipe that other bloggers had tried successfully. All I needed to get was a baking pan. Hahaha.
And so armed with the pan, I got the kids to mix the ingredients together, then we put it in our wok to steam. It turned out ok. Its very simple to prepare. We didn’t even need a hand held whisk which we don’t even have. All we needed was a fork and spoon to mix the ingredients together.
Encouraged by our success we decided to make another one the next day. Our pan was a little to big for the steamed banana cake recipe so we mixed two bowlsÂ so that each kid could mix his/her own cake. I substituted the girl’s cake with strawberry jam instead of mashed bananas.
When they were done mixing, we put everything together into the pan, one side for the banana mixture and another side for the strawberry mixture. It turned out lovely. A two colour cake. However, I must say that the banana side was muchÂ more fragrant than the strawberry one.
What did I enjoy most about baking?Â The kids enjoying themselves mixing the ingredients and being fascinated by the end results which looks so different from their cake mixture.Â And they enjoyed the cake too. They had 3 pieces each! 🙂
Baking is a wonderful activity to do with the kids. They learn Maths when counting in the ingredients and a little bit of Science just by comparing how different the cake looks before and after. 🙂
