Baking Poem

We are kids from all over the world…

who enjoy to create and bake…

yummy and wonderful cakes…

filled of Chocolate and Vanilla…

but we will not give them to a hungry gorilla!

Instead, we will give them to the people we love…

Instead, we will give them to strangers who have nothing to eat or nowhere to have a proper seat.

Instead, we will eat them alone and sing a song when we deserve a treat which you can’t beat!

Our Chocolate and Vanilla cakes are definitely something you cannot beat…

but you would love to receive them as a treat!

We bake our cakes with love and passion …

And no! They are not out of fashion!…

because they are filled of Chocolate and Vanilla

and can even make creatures excited such as a hungry and happy gorilla! 😀

Vanilla Hearts & Tiny Men Meringues

Most girls do love pink! What could be better than making them some cute Vanilla Hearts & Tiny Men Meringues as a combined ice cream treat?!! 😀

*Thinking…thinking*

😀

Some Vanilla Hearts & Tiny Men Meringues!!! Yay! 

😀

Here come the EGGS!!! Start BAKING!!! Tuuut tuuut!! 😀

Recipe (makes 14 tiny men & 3 hearts)

  • 2 dl egg white (6 egg whites)
  • 4 dl caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Dr. Oetkers red food colouring

Preheat the oven to 100 degrees C.

Simmer the egg whites and sugar in a water bath until most of the sugar has dissolved.

Pour it into a dry and clean bowl. Beat the meringue mixture thick, shiny and creamy. Flavour the mixture with the vanilla extract in the end.

The meringues are done when you can turn the bowl upside down without the mixture falling out.

Place almost half of the meringue mixture into a second bowl and colour the mixture with Dr. Oetker’s red food colouring.

Spoon or pipe the meringue mixture onto the parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Pipe hats, eyes and mouths on the meringues.

Finally, use the piping bag to make the 3 big heart-shaped meringues.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 60-75 minutes or until they are done. The meringues are done when they come off the parchment paper.

Happy Meringue Love Baking! 😀

The Spanish Nursery Baby Apple Crumble Pies

I liked the Baby Currant Crumble Pies so much, and I especially LOVE Swedish Apple Crumble Pie, so I decided to bake The Spanish Nursery Baby Apple Crumble Pies… (yes!! a very long word, haha) 😀 Absolutely AMAZING, DELICIOUS & YUMMY!!!! Mmmm… 😀

The two bigger paper cases are the Nursery Teachers and the tiny, baby ones, are the kids at the Nursery. I named the Nursery Spanish due to the Spanish colours (yellow and red). Haha. 😀

Recipe (makes 20 Babies & 2 Teachers)

Dough

  • 2 dl plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
  • 80 gr butter

Filling

  • 4 Golden Delicious apples
  • ½ dl caster sugar
  • 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.

Peel the apples and cut them into smaller pieces. Put the apple pieces, sugar and cinnamon into a bowl and mix it all together.

Place 20 small paper cases and two bigger ones on a baking sheet.

Put flour, vanilla sugar, caster sugar and butter into a bowl.

Work all together until you get a smooth and firm dough.

With help of a teaspoon, fill each paper case with four – five teaspoons of the apple mix.

Sprinkle the crumble dough over the apple mix.

Bake them in the middle of the oven, 20 minutes.

Let them cool a bit before being served.

Optional you can eat them with whipped cream or vanilla sauce.

Yesterday, I got some superb help from my two half Swedish/half British TOP Bakers, Alice (6 yrs old) & Toby (5 yrs old)! These Swedish Chocolate balls are so EASY to make so even kids can bake them…

What did we think about the Chocolate balls? 

Alice: “Tastier than delicious because they have chocolate and pearl sugar!”

Toby: “They were tasty because they have pearl sugar on and were sugary! The chocolate was sugary and very tasty! “

After such a GREAT review I can only advice you guys to bake them as well! Kids are ALWAYS excellent judges when it comes to baking and sweets… I certainly think so!!! 😀

What did we enjoy with making them? 

Alice: “Everything was fun with the baking and because we baked together.”

Toby: “To roll them in pearl sugar.”

What can be more joyful than baking with your family and especially with kids?! I can’t think of anything. 😀  Good luck with your baking and hope you enjoyed reading my post! 😀 The recipe is below…
