I felt like doing a little baking the other day with my two year old nephew. I wanted something simple in which he could really participate and get involved with! One of my favourite childhood memories is baking with my grandma when I was a little girl! I honestly feel that it is never too early to start baking with your little ones. Plenty of adult supervision and it is huge (messy) fun!
He loves chocolate so I thought chocolate spread muffins would be a good option, and a little more interesting than plain chocolate muffins!
Chocolate spread muffins ingredients – 200g self raising flour, 1 egg, 75 ml vegetable oil, 125 ml milk, 100g caster sugar, chocolate spread and 1/2 tsp salt. (Makes approx 10 muffins).
Preheat oven to 180C. Beat the egg in a large bowl and mix in the oil and milk. Then add the sugar. Add the flour and salt and mix until you have a smooth batter.
Next spoon some mixture into each cake case. Fill each case up about halfway.
Once you have some mixture in each case add two spoons of chocolate spread into each case, then cover with a spoon of the batter mixture. (Make sure you add plenty of the spread as a lot of it will disappear during baking)!
Bake in the oven for approximately 12 – 15 minutes or until golden.
We thought our chocolate spread muffins were yummy and it is a nice surprise when you bite into the muffin and discover the chocolate taste! My nephew really enjoyed helping to make the muffins and he certainly enjoyed eating them!
