Back to school! 2 perfect easy-bake treats to share with classmates too

Anna Daly


So it’s official. We’re back to school and summer is but a fond memory.

The rain is forcing us to call an end to those outdoor family activities and move indoors. Well, what better way to pass the time than with a spot of baking?

It’s the all-time best way to spend some time because 1. it’s fun, 2. you’re allowed to be messy, 3. it smells really nice, and 4. you can eat your end product. What’s not to love?

To make it even easier for little ones though, it’s entirely worth trying out Homecook’s Lemon Drizzle Mix or their Chocolate Brownie Mix (for chocolate fanatics you have at home). There’s still all the fun of baking, while being that bit easier to handle with kids.

To make that Chocolate Brownie Mix, add eggs, butter and water. Pop it in the oven for 30 minutes and TAH-DAH! – the kids have themselves the easiest introduction to baking EVER. For the lemon drizzle, pop in the eggs, margarine and milk. Voilà!

If you and the little ones are looking for that true, decadent brownie – melt some of Homecook’s milk chocolate Wonderbar in a small pot and pour it over the chocolate bakes. (Scrumptious!)

Traditionally, a Lemon Drizzle Cake has an iced sugar topping, but we’re loving it with a bit of Homecook’s white chocolate melted on top instead.

And the best thing about these little cakes? Easy as pie, speedy AND everyone will love them. Activity done, happy kids, happy parents. Sorted.

Oh, and let’s not forget. We have a little competition you can enter below if you’d like to nab a Homecook hamper that includes ALL the yummy goodies they create as well as some brand-new baking utensils.
