One of my favourite things to do is bake for my little boy. I love nothing more than making us both something scrumptious to eat (reduced in sugar obviously), so we can then sit together at the kitchen table, laugh and enjoy each others company. This usually involves practising our new words too. Toddlers really do rock!
I have found so many great resources for cooking for babies and toddlers. I have become a huge fan of Annabel Karmel. Her iPhone app that I used religiously when we first introduced solids was so helpful, providing healthy meal ideas for those of us who want to prepare yummy food for our babies, but are not quite sure how to go about it. The other day I made her Apple, Raisin and Bran Muffins which were fab and today, her Yogurt cake. This is positively delicious and very moreish. It took less than five minutes to make and will be lucky to last until tomorrow :)

Yogurt Magimix Cake (makes 8 adult portions)
( I don't have a Magimix but used my Kitchenaid. The instructions state that a food processor or blender could also be used).

160g sugar
250 mls of vegetable oil
225g of natural set yogurt
2 eggs
225g of self raising flour
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
icing sugar

Grease a 25cm/10 inch round cake tin. In a blender or food processor, mix the sugar with the oil, and then add the yogurt and mix. Blend with the eggs, flour and vanilla. Pour into the prepared tin and bake at 325-350F(160-180C) for 55 minutes. Sprinkle the top with icing sugar.

I was thinking, as an alternative you could also add some lemon zest.... yum!
What are some of your easy, scrummy baking recipes?
