Baking with Grandkids

Sabrina and Mathieu are anxious to bake with Granny again.

They are wearing their new aprons Mommie bought at Ikea and they also have on hairnets.
Today we are baking Banana Muffins.

Sabrina starts mixing the dry ingredients. Mathieu is mixing in the flour
Sabrina is filling the muffin cups.

This is a tedious job.

Oops. Some on my fingers....

Nearly finished.

All done.....................

We used the large and mini muffin tins...

Baking with Grandkids - Cinnamon Rolls

I didn't want to expose my grand kids
 to the Internet in 2008,
 so I delayed linking up this post. 
They have grown up since then.

Today we made Cinnamon Rolls.
One of the Children's favorites!!
Let's get started.
(They wore shower caps to replace hairnets)
Mathieu started mixing the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.

He mixes seriously

Sabrina mixed also

Mathieu started mixing the egg and butter

Time to add the milk.
Mathieu don't drink the milk, 
it goes in the bowl

Mathieu likes milk
Sabrina drinks also

We drank all the milk. ...No problem, there's more...
Love this pic
They rolled out the dough
(I'm missing this pic

After spreading on the butter, brown sugar 
and cinnamon,
Sabrina rolls up the dough.
 Nice job Sabrina..

Sabrina and Mathieu were delighted, they were going to help me bake.

We got out the goods...
notice: the red car in Mathieu's hand. He even sleeps with it.

And the tools.....
We're ready to go...

After Mathieu poured in all the ingredients,
Sabrina mixed together the butter and flour

She mixes in the milk...

She takes this seriously, she loves doing this...

A nice dough - Knealing the dough..

The fun part........rolling the dough...
She could stand on a chair but prefers working directly on the counter.
Mathieu observes the situation...
