Breadonbutter Baby: Introduction

Having a baby was always a major fear for me. Since I grew up with a gynecologist dad, I had all the (ugly) details of it all. I was a very curious little girl and I used to listen to grown-up conversations all the time. So I knew everything pregnant women out there were going through. I knew what to expect, when to go to the hospital, when a feeling meant bad news and more importantly what not to eat while pregnant. Continue Reading “Breadonbutter Baby: Introduction”

Fun Mini Muffin Skewers

Yesterday, I decided to make a super easy yogurt cake recipe my mom gave me. Halfway through the mix, I thought it would be fun to turn the batter into muffins instead of one big cake. I retrieved my mini muffin molds I had never used and some silicon IKEA molds we had (click here to see what I’m talking about) and divided the whole thing among them. I was so proud of my mini muffins that i just had to send pictures to everyone. And that’s when Jean had the brilliant idea to mix them with fruits and make them into skewers. With a yogurt dip of course ๐Ÿ™‚

Like these prawns on skewers we made a few weeks ago, it’ll be much easier to savor the mini muffins and the fruits in parties. It can also be pretty fun to make kids participate in the whole thing if you have them wandering around at home!

What you’ll need (for 18 mini muffins)

– 2 pots of Yogurt (flavor of your choice) – Note: you’ll be using the pots for measurement so don’t throw them away when they’re empty

– 3 pots of flour

– 1 pot of diet vegetable oil (Lesieur is the one I used)

– 2 pots of sugar

–ย 2 teaspoons of baking powder

– 2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar

– 3 eggs

How to make it is really simple:

1) Preheat the oven at 180 degrees celsius and mix all of the ingredients together

2) Pour them in the muffin molds

3) Place them in the oven for about 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean

4) Let them cool completely then decorate your skewers and serve with yogurt. You can pour honey or any jam you like on the yogurt for additional taste.

Cooking With Kids – Easy Chocolate Crepes

During long vacations and on weekends, your kids or, in my case, little cousins, are often at home and you wonder what to do to amuse them. Our Breadonbutter guest chef, Jean Fares, always seems to make his magical sentence work – “how about we make some crepes?”. It works like a charm and it’s not a lot of effort, doesn’t mess up the kitchen and leaves them happy for at least 45 minutes, not counting the crepe flips in the air.
What you’ll need is:
– 250 grams of Flour
– 3 Eggs
– 0.5 liters of Milk
– 2 tablespoons of Sugar
– 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
– A pinch of Salt
How to make it:
– In a bowl, pour the flour and make a hole in it
– Break the eggs in the hole
– Mix while at the same time pouring the milk on top
– Add the salt, sugar and oil
– Mix well
You can either start making your crepes right away, or, if you have time, let the mix rest for a maximum of 15 minutes.
That day, we only made Nutella crepes (adding a bit of cognac for grown-ups). But you can also make plain ones and let the children add whatever they want to it, ranging from sugar, to jam or even jam and yellow cheese (which I sometimes prefer to Nutella).
And you’ve got yourself a happy kid!
