When I visited the Spring Fair back in February I came across a company supplying just my kind of product. Bake at Home Kits supply Artisan Baking Kits and Luxury Baking Mixes. I was struck by the simply packaging and love anything that introduces children to baking. I was really thrilled when Bake at Home Kits asked Monkey and I to try out a couple of their kits.
Our range of easy to follow Artisan Bake at Home Kits and Luxury Baking Mixes are handmade use only the finest of ingredients.
We received the Artisan Seeded Flowerpot Bread Making Kit and the Safari Cookie Baking Mix to test out. The first thing you notice, totally recyclable packaging; love it.
As Monkey and I were off to Whipsnade Zoo soon we decided to start with the Safari Cookie Baking Mix, which comes complete with a Giraffe shaped cookie cutter.
The instructions to make the cookies are on the back of the mix pack; and you only need to add butter and an egg to make the cookies. The instructions are clear and easy to follow.
I was left in charge of rolling out the cookie mixture and then Monkey used the cutter to make his giraffes. The pack states there is enough mixture to make 6-8 Giraffe shaped cookies, we managed to make and still have mixture over to make some stars.
We popped the cookies in the oven for 15 minutes and waited. Now I have to be honest, I’m now known for my biscuit making abilities, my nieces still laugh about the disastrous Easter chick cookies I tried to make with them when they were little.
I was hoping that my jinx was over, I was wrong. I’m not sure what
we I did wrong, but the cookies had all spread out of shape, bar one. Any ideas? Guidance would be much appreciated.
Now, shape aside, the Safari Cookies tasted totally delicious; neither Monkey or Daddy P seemed too bothered about the change in shape. They really were scrummy and didn’t last long at all.
Next we were to make the Artisan Seeded Flowerpot Bread – a first for me. You may remember that we made Hot Cross Buns for the first time at Easter. Now bread! Well, I vaguely remember attempted bread in Home Economics a million years ago, but in the real world I’ve never tried to make bread by myself.
Monkey decided to leave Mummy to it for this one. I’ll watch you Mummy! Everything you need is included in the Bread making kit; just add warm water and olive oil. An Instruction Sheet gives clear guidance and away I went.
Although Monkey was quite happy to let me do all of the work, he enjoyed watching the bread dough rising;we talked about yeast. He was impressed. But not as impressed as he was by the finished product! The bread was (it didn’t last long) devine.
I was so pleased with the result. An added bonus is the flower pots. I may let Monkey loose with his paint brushes and plant herbs in them. Or we may make more bread in them. We shall see.
