Making Flowerpot Bread from The Kids Only Cookbook

During the slightly manic run-up to Christmas, we received this rather exciting hamper containing The Kids Only Cookbook, some kiddie-sized kitchen utensils and a shopping voucher to get the ingredients to make up one of the recipes - Flowerpot Bread.

Yesterday, Pierre discovered it, put on the apron and came to find me clutching the book ! OK, off to make flowerpot bread then !

The book is brilliant - it contains a really good mix of sweet and savoury recipes and has simple instructions laid out on brightly coloured, double-paged spreads with loads of accompanying photos. We'll definitely be making many more of the recipes in it.

Pierre carefully mixed up the dough.

It's so much more fun getting your hands in there !

I think he thought I'd gone a bit mad when I said we were using flowerpots !

At this point, Juliette popped into the kitchen and, with faultless child logic, pointed out that as it was being made in flowerpots, we should put some seeds on top of the bread. We all decided this was a great idea and I just happened to have a bag of seeds lurking in the back of the baking cupboard.

After half an hour in the oven, this is how they came out.

I thought they'd be really hard to get out of the flowerpots but they just plopped out.

The bread was really soft - Juliette said it was like sponge cake ! - and, as you can see, Pierre was very proud with his finished creation !

The Kids Only Cookbook is published by Quadrille and has an RRP of £12.99 but you can currently grab one on Amazon for under a fiver !

Disclosure : We received the book and a hamper of goodies, in order to try out one of the recipes.
