These are a great little make for children of all ages, even very small children should be able to make these entirely on their own.

No scales required, just a yogurt pot for measurement. Nor any fancy ingredients. If you don’t have bananas sub them for something you do have, a couple of chopped apples or pears, sliced tinned peaches, apricots, pineapple or pears. The same goes for the raisins, sub for sultanas, chopped dried apricots or chopped fresh fruit. If you have self raising flour use instead of the plain flour and baking powder. Sub the flour for wholemeal or gluten free if you wish. If you don’t have fairy cake tins make into a larger loaf cake.

The Good Stuff:

Bananas, Dried Fruit



Great For:

Lockdown Baking, Home Schooling, Learning to Bake, Toddlers, Preshoolers, Big Kids, Family Baking



Notes:

Use very ripe or brown bananas if you have them. If you don’t have bananas sub them for something you do have, a couple of chopped apples or pears, sliced tinned peaches, apricots, pineapple or pears. The same goes for the raisins, sub for sultanas, chopped dried apricots or chopped fresh fruit. If you have self raising flour use instead of the plain flour and baking powder. Sub the flour for wholemeal or gluten free if you wish. If you don’t have fairy cake tins make into a larger loaf cake.
