With the weather turning colder and days growing shorter, it’s a great opportunity to get the kids into baking. They’ll love helping to measure out ingredients and put their own spin on our chocolate chip cookies with some icing and marshmallows! Not only that, they make the perfect packed lunch treat.
If the kids are all grown up and embarking upon a University adventure, give them the gift of home baking to help with the move. Our hearty autumn crumble cake is a classic and packed with nutrients you’re unlikely to find in a typical student diet! Perfect hot or cold, a bit of Mum’s kitchen magic can make all the difference in the transition between home and halls.
With change in the air, why not try something new in the kitchen? Our apple and pear pancakes make the most of seasonal produce and are perfect if you’re not too confident in the kitchen. If you’re looking for a challenge, try your hand at perfecting choux pastry in our irresistible chocolate eclairs and profiteroles.
This month also brings a baking event to be excited about with National Cupcake Week running from 19th to 25th September! No matter what your skill level, it’s a great opportunity for everyone to get involved in some kitchen fun. The kids will love mixing the batter and getting creative with the decoration of our classic butterfly cakes. If you’re looking for something extra special to bake for the occasion, our celebration cupcakes are simply divine!
All of our recipes use Trex, which is not only lower in saturated fat and aerated, you can use 20% less of it than butter. So whether you’re baking for the family or sending treats to University, Trex offers a simply delicious healthy alternative to butter.
TRY SOMETHING NEW
We’re feeling the September shift and want to be a little more adventurous in the kitchen this month. To help give that little nudge, we’ve done some research on the top kitchen techniques to master in your lifetime. How many have you perfected?
Baking is a lot of trial and error, especially when you’re trying something completely new! The trick is to expect it to go a little wrong the first few times and to keep calm, leaving plenty of time to give it another go if things don’t quite go to plan. After all, if we were amazing at everything first time life would be pretty boring!
