It is so much fun now that our little girl is getting older!
She was very excited to make bread this week, and she did most of the work.
Of course it wasn't really "work" it was just Great Fun.
We started mixing the bread in our cake mixer with dough hooks, but eventually had to get it out and knead by hand as the recipe called for 6 cups of flour and we knew our little mixer would not be happy trying to mix that amount!
Kneading was made MUCH easier by using this lovely kneading board that Daddy made for us. And you can see that Little Girl is using the table Daddy made too - it's far more pleasant and more efficient for children to have sturdy, workable tools to suit their size.
Here's a close-up of our lovely kneading board - it is excellent for rolling pastry and biscuit dough out too.
If you would like one, and are not able to make one yourself we will be selling these in our business, Willow Cottage, very soon!
After I took the photo above I realised that now the world can see we have no cupboard doors and drawer fronts in our kitchen!! But we are blessed to have a kitchen. :o) So who needs cupboard doors!
The smaller loaf was completely gone by the end of afternoon tea - the boys loved it!
We saved the larger loaf to show Daddy, and enjoyed it with jam after tea.
