Toddler cooking (7)

I haven't done one of these posts for waaaay too long... D and I have been cooking together but I just haven't got round to blogging about it. If you want to see any of my older toddler cooking posts just click on the "cooking" label at the bottom of this post. Anyway - here are some of the things he's helped make in the last few months:

Vegetable bake cake

Easy to make and super healthy - I just grated the vegetables and then D did the rest :) just mix flour, eggs and cheese with grated carrots, courgettes and a mashed sweet potato. Pack into a baking tray and cook for 20ish minutes until cooked through. Slice up whilst still warm and enjoy. Perfect finger food for little ones just weaning, or  a great healthy snack for toddlers.

Chicken quesadillas

I love the simplicity of these, and how D can choose what goes in them. He first made them aged 19 months (see here) and he still enjoys making them. Now he just has to make twice as many so there are enough for Iz too!

Mini pizza

These are similar to the quesadillas and something that D has also been making since he was 17 months old (see here). We've experimented with lots of different bases. Iz likes a muffin cut in half, D prefers puff pastry or wraps. Again it is so easy - D can prepare them himself (once I've got the ingredients out), you can have endless variety and all I need to do is put them in the oven.

Apple and cheese muffins

These are *so* delicious and so simple. Just grate some cheese and an apple (after peeling) and lightly toast half a muffin. Sprinkle a handful of apple onto the toasted muffin, top with cheese and grill until the cheese is melted. Iz loves these, D is not so sure. But that's ok as then there are more leftovers for me... Mmmmm

Fruit cake

These were super easy to make. We used a packet sponge mix, made it up as instructed on the back and then added in a diced apple, mashed banana and a handful of raspberries and blueberries. After I diced the apple and sliced the banana D did all the rest himself. Super delicious warm and even better with a spoonful of yoghurt on the side :)



Have you done any cooking with your toddler recently? What have you made?
