    I've never heard of hummingbird cake. I'll have to have a google!

    Default Baking with a toddler ideas

    My go to with pantry ingredients are 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies.

    1 cup peanut butter
    1 cup sugar ()
    1 egg

    Mix together. Roll into balls and flatten slightly bake until set.

    So flaming delicious. Not exactly healthy with all that sugar but they are gluten free and if you use pure peanut butter ( no added sugar or salt) they pack a lot of protein (can you see the way I rationalise these).

    It's so good, Google the Women's Weekly recipe. I never bother with the icing, it's not needed.

    You can do apricot bites with 200g dried apricots, 200g dessicated coconut - throw in food processor for 60-90 seconds on high, roll mix into bite sized balls and store in air tight container in the fridge. Not baking, but easy and healthy, and no added sugar like the apricot bites you buy in the stores.

    Ingredients
    2 cups self raising flour
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    250ml tub sour cream
    8 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
    2 large eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    Rhubarb compote ( I rubarb chopped with 1/2 cup sugar and boiled ten mins

    Topping:
    3 tablespoons castor sugar and 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon sugar

    Instructions
    Heat the oven to 190 - Line a 12-cup muffin tin with baking cups.
    In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamonand whisk to blend.
    In a medium bowl, whisk together the sour cream, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Lightly stir the sour cream mixture into the dry ingredients with a spatula until the batter just comes together; do not overmix. Gently stir in the diced rhubarb. The batter will be thick.

    Divide the batter among the muffin cups, using the back of a spoon or a small spatula to settle the batter into the cups. The batter should mound a bit higher than the tops of the cups.

    Sprinkle the topping on each muffin before baking
    Bake the muffins until they’re golden brown, spring back most of the way when gently pressed, and a pick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes.

    Or if you want healthy ( and a good lunch!) I do mini egg frittatas in muffin tins

    just beat 8 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk and add any grated veg you have ( carrot, zucchini etc) add corn or peas and any fresh herbs , a bit of salt and pepper , grated garlic, chia seeds and a small handful of grated cheese and mix well, pour into muffin tins and cook until golden ( approx 10 mins) ( you could add goats cheese or feta and top with a halved cherry tomato)
    I tried the mini egg frittatas with goats cheese as a late afternoon snack. Dd loved making them and eating them. I'd made plainer version for her back when she was a bub but it never occurred to me that it was something she could help with! Thanks for the suggestion.

    There's always playdough too, and cookies that you can both decorate.
