I don’t know about you, but one of the things I looked forward to the most when I imagined having children was baking with them. Of course, the reality is far different than what I expected. Ha! It’s far messier and frustrating, for one thing!
Ginger, my eight year old daughter baking Blondie Bars:
Having five kids, I’ve learned a thing or two over the years and now I can honestly say that I love baking with my kids.
Inspiring baking books and cookbooks just for kids are a staple in our house. Between the beautiful pictures and the easy-to-make recipes, these are a hit!
Here are a few of my go-to, favorite baking cookbooks that make baking with kids fun.
This hardcover baking book is one of my girls’ favorite cookbooks. With tons of high-quality, gorgeous photos – it always inspires us… The recipes are easy to follow, and so far everything we’ve made has turned out great! So far, our most delicious recipe was the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches. So delicious!
This baking book is great for kids to read and learn independence in the kitchen. I like the hands-on lessons with tutorials for developing basic cooking skills like measuring liquids vs. solids and separating eggs. There are over 75 recipes, making it one of the bigger kids’ cookbooks out there!
This book is a not technically a baking book – it’s a cookbook (that includes baked desserts) – and even though it’s not strictly baking, I had to include it because we’re such big fans of the show! My kids have been so inspired watching Master Chef, Jr. – so this book brings that excitement into our kitchen. With easy and delicious recipes, I can’t recommend it enough!
This is one of the very first cookbooks that I ever bought for my daughter! Ahhh, it brings back such warm (pun intended) memories. She was so excited that it was Disney Princess themed, and I was so excited that she loved it enough to follow the recipe. Ha!
And last, but not least, I love this book!
It’s a follow-up to the best-selling book Cooking Class, and I feel like it’s a great value because an actual cooking class costs three times as much. Ha! Seriously, though, this book has been perfect for my kids to really learn their way around the kitchen. The book says it’s best for ages 8-12, but my 6 year old has enjoyed it (with help) – and I feel like it’s honestly even good for young teens and older. It has excellent step-by-step instructions, and it’s even taught me a thing or two! The book has lots of bright, clear pictures and instructions – and so far, our recipes have all turned out delicious! The sweet cinnamon rolls are our Saturday morning go-to. Yum! 🙂
Until next time…be well and take time to enjoy something new each day. 🙂
