Baking Kids Will Love | recipes for kids | kids cooking

Technically, Baking Kids Love by Cindy Mushet is designed for “8- to 12-year-olds,” but I can’t imagine there’s anyone anywhere of any age who won’t eat this book up. You know all those kitchen projects you dreamed about doing with your kids before you actually had kids? This is the book that will get you to strap on the apron, break out the measuring cups, and start making some memories.

Mushet, the award-winning author of The Art & Soul of Baking, decided in Baking Kids Love to share the kitchen with her 11-year-old daughter, Bella, who in turn chimes in with delightful commentary.

If you’re not convinced yet that you should buy it, try any of these recipes. One bite and you’ll be one-clicking away.

  • Chocolate Celebration Cake

    This cake is fun because it doesn’t have frosting on the sides, so you get to see all the pretty layers.

  • Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

    These are chewy yet crispy, sweet yet salty, oatmeal-like yet packed with chocolate chips. When I bit into one, I’m in cookie heaven, surrounded by more cookies that have little halos and wings, sitting on clouds.
