Baking with Archie - Yogurt cake

I'm possibly running away from my blog genre with this post but I just have to share!
My son loves cooking with me and at any given chance will drag his chair across my slate kitchen tiles *eye twitches* to help me bake and cook (Archie style)
I stumbled upon this recipe that literally can't go wrong (i say this as i'm crunching on egg shell) and is perfect for any budding baker to cook all on their own, it's called Yogurt cake as that's what's in it but also the main ingredients are weighed out using the tubs.....hence it's perfect for mini bakers!

You will need;

2 tubs whole milk yogurt (individual portion sized, about 126-175g each) fruity, non fruity it doesn't matter.

2 eggs

2 tubs of caster sugar

1 teaspoon of Vanilla essence

Just under one tub of vegetable oil

4 tubs of plain flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tubs of fresh or frozen fruit or even choccy chips (optional but Archie used fresh blueberries and it was delicious!)

What Archie did next (with a little help from mummy with the hot bits);

Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius, grease a loaf tin or 9-inch round tin with a little veg oil.

Pop all of your wet ingredients in a bowl and give it a good mix then add your dry ingredients and mix again, Archie found using 4 spoons and a triceratops very helpful in aiding mixing, and then add your fruit or choccy....or a tub of both!

Tip all the batter into your tin and (with help from a chosen big kid) pop it in the oven for 35 mins, possibly an extra 5 mins if it fails the knife test


I've vowed to let Archie take control of the kitchen every Saturday morning to whip up a watch this space!

I'm so sorry for forgetting to take a picture of the finished article....I'll try harder next time!
